China has sent 2,500 soldiers to the south-west province of Yunnan after an earthquake killed hundreds of people.

At least 400 people died and more than 1,800 were injured when the magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck yesterday.

Chinese troops with life-detection instruments and digging equipment are on their way to the region to help with rescue efforts.

President Xi Jinping called for "all-out efforts" to find survivors as he dispatched soldiers to the area.
