LIVES LOST, A CHURCH LEFT IN RUINS

Aprivate guard stands near the Basilica of the Holy Child, shown undamaged in 2011 at top, after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake Tuesday that hit Cebu city in central Philippines and toppled the bell tower of the Philippines' oldest church, founded in 1565. The tremor collapsed buildings, cracked roads and killed dozens across the central region's islands. A child was killed and 19 injured as terrified people stampeded from a wobbling structure in Toledo. The earthquake was centered about 32 miles underground. The main airport on Bohol, where the earthquake was centered, was temporarily closed, as were several ports.
