Tangshan, a city rising from earthquake debris

A devastating earthquake hit north China’s Tangshan City on a night 40 years ago.

The quake almost leveled the whole city, which lies just some 150 km southwest of Beijing.

40 years on, a new Tangshan City has rised from ruins, showing the world hopes are always there no matter what disaster we faced.
