Two bodies were retrieved from the lower reaches of the Fujiang River in Sichuan province on Monday morning, casualties of the rain-triggered floods that caused havoc in the region last week.

Local information official Chen Wen confirmed the two victims died after the Qinglian Bridge in Jiangyou, a county-level city in Mianyang, collapsed in a flood on July 9.

Ten people and five vehicles are still missing after the bridge collapsed.
