Taiwan students get back on track

Three schoolchildren hop over earthquake-forged hurdles on a running track Oct. 4 - their first day back to school since a 7.6 magnitude temblor killed more than 2,000 people, injured some 8,000, and left 80,000 homeless on Sept. 21. Military tents have been set up here as temporary classrooms. And thousands of homeless are living in tent cities.
