China Marks Quake That Shook the World


A year after an earthquake devastated China's Sichuan province killing almost 90,000 people, the country remembered victims today during commemorative events.

The earthquake gave typically isolated China a chance to accept help from the rest of the world, and the disaster also prompted a discussion about China's reproductive laws, as the government lifted the "one child" policy for those who lost children in the quake. Today, those parents and other survivors point to shoddy construction of schools and other buildings as the cause of many deaths.
