China gives Taiwan $US16m in typhoon aid
The donation is the most generous so far from the international community to the storm-ravaged island.
Japan earlier donated $103,000, while the United States pledged $250,000.
Typhoon Morakot, which caused the worst flooding in Taiwan in 50 years, killed at least 107 people and left hundreds missing.
Rescue workers in Taiwan are evacuating nearly 1,000 people found alive after their villages were destroyed by rock and mud slides that followed the typhoon's rains.
Continued heavy rain has been hindering their rescue from refuge on higher ground.
Four more bodies were discovered late on Wednesday, after 32 people were found buried under mudslides in a remote mountain hot spring area in Liukuei, Kaohsiung county.
Roads out of the area had been cut off by overflowing rivers and mudslides, rescuers said.
Of the dead, 60 were found in the worst-hit Kaohsiung county alone, said the national rescue agency.
At least 45 people were injured as the typhoon lashed the island with a record three metres of rain, submerging houses, streets and destroying bridges.
