China mudslide, 1 year later

Jin Dongmei, a 6-year-old Tibetan girl, plays with her tiny dog at her home in northwest China's Gansu province.

Dongmei's parents and siblings were killed a year ago in a mudslide that struck Yueyuan Village on Aug. 8, 2010. Now she and her grandparents live in a low-rent house with other survivors.

Thousands of people gathered earlier this week to mourn the 1,500 people who died. Reconstruction of the village, which was wiped out by the natural disaster, is a ray of hope for survivors.
