Quake kills one, injures 11 in China

(CNN) -- An earthquake killed one person and injured 11 in southwest China early Sunday, state media reported.

The 5.2-magnitude quake struck at 5:37 a.m. local time in the Sichuan province, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It toppled 100 homes.

In May 2008, the southwestern province was rocked by a 7.9-magnitude quake that left nearly 90,000 dead or missing, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Thousands of schools were leveled and more than 5,000 students were killed, Xinhua said.
