    At least 29 people were injured and hundreds of buildings damaged in an earthquake in southwestern China's Yunnan province, reports said Friday.

    Dozens of aftershocks continued to rock the area around Chuxiong prefecture where the quake struck shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday.

    Some registered as high as magnitude 5.0, equaling the strength of the original quake, according to the prefectural government and state media.

    Among structures damaged were at least 100 schools, 72 clinics and 1,446 houses. Scores of damaged buildings were being pulled down to guard against collapse.

    More than 700 soldiers were dispatched to aid the rescue. Quilts, clothing and thousands of tents were rushed to the area, about 60 miles (95 kilometers) northwest of the provincial capital of Kunming. More than 3,000 people were being provided temporary shelter in tents
