AFP reports the latest on the “”:

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said on Thursday that efforts to drain a dangerously swollen “quake lake” were at a critical juncture, with one million people warned to prepare for the worst.

Wen, who has been very visible since the devastating May 12 earthquake in southwest Sichuan province, flew by helicopter to the lake at Tangjiashan soon after arriving in the disaster zone early Thursday, Xinhua news agency said.

“Now it’s a critical moment for the Tangjiashan quake lake, and the most important thing is to ensure no casualties among people,” Xinhua quoted Wen as saying.
