    BEIJING, July 22 (RIA Novosti) - Three people were killed and dozens injured in a rainstorm that hit southwest China's Sichuan province on Sunday and Monday, the Xinhua news agency said on Tuesday.

    Sichuan was devastated by a powerful earthquake that hit the region on May 12, leaving some 70,000 people dead and millions homeless. The rainstorm hit reconstruction work in the area, causing landslides and damaging roads.
