Search continues for five mainland tourists  Listenfacebook
A Hong Kong couple have been killed in the earthquake in Taiwan earlier this week, despite rescuers who were searching for them reporting on Friday morning that they had found signs of life. The husband and wife in their late 40s had been staying at an apartment block which partially collapsed following the quake in the eastern city of Hualien on Tuesday night. They were Canadian citizens originally from Hong Kong. Five mainland tourists are also believed to be trapped in the rubble of the same building which is now tilting dangerously. In all, 12 people are now known to have died in the 6.4-magnitude quake. Taiwan journalist Cindy Sui told Annemarie Evans that rescuers are still looking for the five tourists.
