Key Points:

A panda who was relocated following China's deadly earthquake in May gave birth yesterday to twin cubs.

Guo Guo was the first panda to give birth since the 7.9-magnitude quake that rocked Sichuan province on May 12, Xinhua News Agency reported.

One cub weighed 170g. Guo Guo was cuddling the other cub and staffers at the Bifengxia Giant Panda Base were not able to weigh it.

The report did not give the sex of the twins.

Twelve-year-old Guo Guo was moved to the Bifengxia panda centre after the quake caused heavy damage at the Wolong Nature Reserve, where Guo Guo normally lives.
