Parents at a makeshift morgue on Wednesday in Juyuan, China, held the body of their child, killed in Monday’s earthquake - Shiho Fukada for The New York Times

Both the earthquake in central China and the cyclone in Myanmar were natural disasters with magnitudes of their own.  But the more tragic disasters are of human origin – fear and greed, selfishness and corruption – and make the losses even more bitter.

Absolutely heartbreaking.
