Earthquake hits China`s Yushu again

A 5.2 magnitude earthquake rocked a largely Tibetan region in northwest China.

Beijing: A 5.2 magnitude earthquake rocked a largely Tibetan region in northwest China on Sunday, the official Xinhua news agency reported, more than a year after a 7.1 magnitude tremor killed 2,700 people in the same area.

It was not immediately known if there were any casualties or damage after the quake with its epicentre in Nangqian county at a depth of 10 km (six miles), Xinhua cited the China Earthquake Networks Centre as saying.

A 7.9 magnitude earthquake left more than 87,000 people dead or missing and millions homeless in the southwestern province of Sichuan in May 2008, months before Beijing hosted the Summer Olympics.
