Over 20,000 Chinese quake survivors rescued

As the situations and conditions in southwest China's quake-ravaged Sichuan province are worse than first estimated, the number of PLA's rescue and relief troops has been quickly doubled from the originally moblised 50,000 to the newly reported 130,000. PLA specialist units like medical and engineering have also been assigned for operations. According to the lastest Xinhua report, more than 20,000 survivors of the quake have been rescued and many roads in the vicinity cleared.
