    Chinese rescue teams have discovered the bodies of all 18 children buried when a mudslide consumed a primary school in Yunnan province.

    The landslide, caused by torrential rain, buried the school and three farmhouses.

    Last month two earthquakes hit the area killing 81 people.

    The dead children had been attending school in order to catch up on lost time following the twin tremors.
