Tons of Cherries Rotted in Village of Ya'an

Fruit growers in Wulong village of Ya'an city are suffering great losses as a result of the Ya'an earthquake on April 20, 2013. Their only road collapsed in the quake, cutting off transportation and causing an estimated 50 tons of ripe cherries grown there to rot. Wulong village of Baoxing County in Ya'an has an annual cherry yield of 80 tons, accounting for two-thirds of Baoxing's overall cherry yield. Farmers expect to sell only one-fifth of the cherries produced in Wulong this year. Photos: CFP
