Water pours out of China's quake lake as gov't says crisis is over

China has declared victory in its fight to drain a lake that threatened more than a million people living downstream after it was formed by last month's massive earthquake. Churning waters poured through a man-made sluice Tuesday and engulfed low-lying, empty towns where more than 250,000 people had been evacuated to higher ground. Sichuan province's top leader, local Communist Party chief Liu Qibao, called it a "decisive victory" as waters gushed from Tangjiashan lake Tuesday, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
