Almost 600 people are now known to have died in the earthquake that hit Yunnan province on Sunday, officials have said.

The 6.1-magnitude quake struck a mountainous area, destroying thousands of houses and triggering landslides.

It is still not known how many people are still missing - many remote villages are still to be reached.
