Chengdu, China (AP) Nine days after the 7.9 earthquake that killed more than 41,000 people in Central China, the massive recovery effort has prompted Beijing to order some belt-tightening.
State agencies are being told to cut spending by 5 percent to support a 10-billion-dollar reconstruction fund.
There was a piece of good news today. A woman was pulled alive from a power plant where she'd been trapped by the quake.
As the recovery effort continues, more schools are reopening in the disaster zone, but rain and a shortage of tents are adding to the problem of sheltering the homeless.
