The Wider Image: Scars begin to heal a decade after Sichuan quake
A decade after a massive earthquake rocked China's southwestern province of Sichuan, killing almost 70,000 people, the scars have begun to heal. The 7.9 magnitude quake which hit on May 12, 2008 was most devastating around its epicentre in Beichuan. Many of the houses that collapsed remain buried under the earth and are covered by overgrown bushes and weeds. In some of the houses still standing, now part of an open air memorial to the dead, wedding photos hang on the wall. Damaged school classrooms remain a mess, with books on the desks turning black with rot. Signs in Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean and French urge visitors to be careful where they tread to let the dead rest in peace. REUTERS/Jason Lee SEARCH "BEICHUAN ANNIVERSARY" FOR THIS STORY.
