A powerful earthquake has killed between 3,000 and 5,000 people in one county alone in Sichuan province, south-western China, reports say.

Thousands are feared killed and injured across other areas after the quake, which had a magnitude of 7.8, struck at 1428 local time (0628 GMT).

At least 50 bodies have been recovered from the rubble of a school where an estimated 900 students were buried.

President Hu Jintao has urged "all-out" efforts to rescue victims.

The epicentre of the earthquake was about 92km (57 miles) from Chengdu, Sichuan's provincial capital.

Because the earthquake struck in the middle of the day, it is feared that many schoolchildren may be among the victims.

I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

It must be horrible which I can't even start to imagine. Millions of their homes destroyed and thousands and thousands of their loved ones gone. What's worse, the numbers keep on rising.
