China Warns Over Quake Corruption

From BBC News:

Chinese regulators have warned that any corrupt practices linked to relief supplies for the Sichuan earthquake will be severely punished.

Officials are working to get tents and supplies to the five million people made homeless by the 12 May quake. The official death toll is now more than 41,000, and another 32,000 people are still missing. There was some good news on Wednesday when a woman was reportedly rescued from a tunnel of a hydropower plant.
