    Tuesday's tremor hit just hours after the Olympic torch completed a tour of the disaster zone from May earthquake, state media said.

    The recent tremor was also felt in Xining city, the capital of Qinghai province, a tourist was quoted by the AFP news agency as saying.

    Another tourist was quoted as saying the tremor had been felt as far away as Xian city in north China's Shaanxi province.
