Several more countries have offered aid to China whose southwest Sichuan province was hit by a massive earthquake on Monday.

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz has decided to donate 50 million U.S. dollars in cash and 10 million dollars worth of relief materials.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced that his country will provide to China 1 million pounds (about 2 million U.S.) in aid.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said his government will provide a first instalment of 500,000 euros (800,000 U.S. dollars) in aid to the German Red Cross to help China in its relief work.

Also, the Polish Foreign Ministry announced aid worth 100,000 U.S. dollars for China's quake-stricken people.
