**Deadly Earthquake in Southwestern China**
Chinese officials say an earthquake in a remote mountainous region of the country's southwest has killed at least 175 people.
They say more than 1,400 people were injured in Sunday's quake. Many people are still missing.
The quake's epicenter was in Yunnan province. It caused several buildings to collapse, including at least one school.
The U.S. Geological Survey said Sunday's earthquake had a magnitude of 6.1. Chinese authorities said the magnitude was higher.
Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said the earthquake was the strongest to hit Yunnan in 14 years.
The official Xinhua news agency said that the epicenter was in Longtoushan town in Yunnan's Ludian county.
It says the government is sending thousands of tents, folding beds, quilts and coats to the affected area.
Southwestern China is frequently struck by earthquakes. In 2012 an earthquake in the Yunnan region killed at least 80 people.
**9 Killed in Fighting in Eastern Ukraine**
Deadly clashes between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists continued Sunday as investigators searched the site of a plane crash for a third day.
Local officials in Donetsk say six people were killed there in shelling between the two sides. An official tells Reuters news agency three other people were killed in Luhansk.
A Reuters reporter in central Donetsk said the shelling echoed through the night and witnesses said several buildings caught fire in the outlying Petrovsky district, including a school. The smell of smoke stretched as far as the city center.
Many residents of Luhansk, which is close to the border with Russia, have no electricity and some are without water, the city administration's press office said.
