Of the capital's 8,700 schools, 103 reopened Monday, the education ministry said.

"For the safety of the boys, the girls, the teachers and for the peace of mind, of course, of all the fathers and all the mothers, all schools will be inspected", Nuno said. In total, the 7-year-old has detected the bodies of 52 people throughout her career, 12 of whom are still alive.

The first days saw a dramatic scramble with picks, shovels and bare hands to reach survivors, and well over 100 were saved. But that means almost 1,000 were found uninhabitable - and the number seemed likely to rise as more are inspected.

Foreign teams from Israel, the United States and elsewhere worked with dogs and hi-tech gear to try to detect signs of life under the rubble. Heavy machinery moved in to begin removing the mountains of debris.
