At least 156 people have died and over 5,500 are injured after a 6.6-magnitude earthquake hit the town of Ya’an, in Sichuan province, south-west China, this morning. It is believed to have been on the same fault as the devastating quake that left 70,000 dead and another 18,000 missing in Sichuan five years ago.
