Russia promises more China earthquake help

Russia's Emergencies Ministry says it will provide more earthquake relief to China as needed. Meanwhile, a team of medics and rescuers, who've been working in the disaster area, have returned to Russia.

65 doctors treated more than 1,500 patients over the two weeks they spent providing disaster relief.

The death toll now stands at almost 70,000 as a result of the worst disaster China has seen in decades.
