Victims of the Gansu, Zhouqu Mudslide

In lieu of posting any news about this disaster — which is widely available in English from any number of sources ((Among the less obvious ones, try following Western media correspondents on Twitter; many of them are on the ground and tweeting from Gansu. I find @melissakchan to be a particularly poignant source of info via Twitter.)) — I would like to repost some photos from Wang Keqin’s blog with translations of his captions. These photos were apparently taken by Wang himself, who is in Zhouqu covering the disaster.

The pain of losing a loved one.

Moving the dead.

Waiting: her home is right under the large rock she is squatting on; where is her family?

Cleaning away the mud.

A human struggle.

A short break.

Crossing the flooded street.
