Swelling lakes force surviors to flee

China moves thousands of people to higher ground amid worries over rising water levels in "quake lakes". Engineers in Sichuan province have constructed a sluice to discharge water from a lake at Tangjiashan. The area's landslide-blocked river has become the most pressing danger following the 7.9 magnitude quake that struck on May 12. (Reuters)
