Typhoon death toll rises in China

The casualty figures rose after rescuers found 28 more bodies in the coastal city of Fuding, China’s official news agency Xinhua said.

Typhoon Saomai has weakened to a tropical depression but more rain fell on Sunday in inland areas.

The storm has destroyed more than 50,000 homes and caused damage of at least $1.4bn (£760m), officials say.
