7.1 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Remote Area Of China

GOLMUD, CHINA - APRIL 17: (EDITORS NOTE: IMAGE CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT) Tibetan monks prepare a mass cremation for the victims of a strong earthquake, on April 17, 2010, in Jiegu, near Golmud, China. Current reports state 1144 people died and more than eleven thousand were injured when the 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck Qinghai Province. Most of the victims are Tibetan and would normally have a sky burial, in which the bones of the bodies are broken and are left for vultures, but the sheer number of victims have forced the authorities to abandon the practice.
