    At least 70 people have been killed, and many more injured since an earthquake hit Myanmar on Thursday.

    The township of Tarlay in eastern Shan state is where Myanmar, Thailand and Laos meet to form the golden triangle, about 50 kilometres from the epicentre of the quake.

    It now lies in ruins. Officials fear the overall number of casualties could be much higher.
