A body lies in the rubble of a destroyed market in Beichuan Town, which was severely damaged by a powerful 7.9 earthquake. The Chinese government raised the death toll to 21,500 but has said fatalities could rise above 50,000. Tens of thousands could still be buried in collapsed buildings in Sichuan province, where the quake was centered.
