  • Search continues in damaged building in Taiwan

"The military will continue to prioritise today rescuing the missing people in the Yun Men Tsui Ti residential building", it said in a statement.

Hopes of finding additional survivors from this week's quake in Taiwan were fading Friday after two more bodies were found in a partially collapsed hotel and no signs detected of a missing family of five. Six mainland Chinese were also injured, the Chinese Communist Party-run People's Daily reported.

Pope Francis expressed his solidarity with the people of Taiwan after two high-magnitude earthquakes devastated the island nation, killing at least nine people and injuring hundreds more.

The magnitude-6.4 quake occurred near the city of Hualien, destroying a hotel and other buildings.

The magnitude 6.4-quake, which hit near the coastal city just before midnight (local time) on Tuesday, also injured 260 people and collapsed four buildings, officials said.

De Castro's aunt, Mary Jane Albano-Abig of Barangay Banguian in Abulug town, said her niece was the only breadwinner in the family.

Tsai said she "ordered search and rescue workers not to give up on any opportunity to save people, while keeping their own safety in mind".

President Tsai Ing-wen reassured the public every effort would be made to rescue survivors. "We offer our support during this hard time as we continue to monitor rescue efforts and pray that more people are found".

Bridges and some highways along Taiwan's east coast were closed pending inspections.

Hualien policeman Cheng Po-jen was on duty Tuesday night when a magnitude 6.0 natural disaster struck the eastern Taiwan city, causing four buildings to partially collapse including the one in which Cheng lived.

Taiwan has frequent earthquakes due to its position along the "Ring of Fire", the seismic faults encircling the Pacific Ocean. Five people involved in the construction of the complex were later found guilty of negligence and given prison sentences.

As of noon Saturday, 14 people had been confirmed dead and three remain missing in the Hualien quake, which had an intensity of 7 - the highest level on Taiwan's 7-tier intensity scale, in downtown Hualien, according to the Central Emergency Operations Center.
