The earthquake in China has had great damage to the people and the nation at large, and left 19, 000 buried in rubble, while more than 13,000 are confirmed dead.
It has been a big shock to hear of the strong quake and the thousands of innocent lives lost in China. I, as The New Times reader, pay my heartiest condolences to the bereaved families in China. And on personal level, I am deeply saddened by these tragic events. I wish China well in this difficult time. My condolences to those affected and saddened by the loss of lives.
