Chinese rescuers have pulled out more than 900 people alive from ruined buildings after a quake hit the remote northwest on Wednesday, killing at least 400 and injuring thousands more, state media said.

Police pulled the survivors out over the course of the day after the quake of at least 6.9 magnitude rocked a mountainous area of Qinghai province early Wednesday, China's state television said.
