A 5.0-magnitude earthquake struck central China's Sichuan province on Thursday near the border with Gansu province, the US Geological Survey said. The agency said the quake's epicenter was 200 kilometers northeast of Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan. Many parts of the province were devastated by a 7.9-magnitude earthquake on May 12 that left nearly 90,000 people dead or missing. There were no reports of casualties from Thursday's tremor, an aftershock of the May earthquake, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
