The official death toll from the quake rose to 38, with more than 100 people missing. The girl, named as Lin Su-Chin, was conscious and had been taken to hospital, Taiwan television stations said, adding there were possibly two other people still alive in the wrecked building.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin strongly condemned on Monday North Korea's latest rocket launch, calling it a violation of the international law. Commenting on reports that Russian components had been used in the rocket launch by North Korea, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: "This is rather a technological question." He did not elaborate.
