    Dear Teachers:

    Is the usage of 'left' in the following sentence correct? I think there should be a 'which / that' before 'left'.

    “CITIZENS of the disaster zone are marching towards a new life,” proclaimed China's president, Hu Jintao, on May 12th, a year after an earthquake in Sichuan Province left more than 86,000 dead or missing and millions homeless.
    Thank you in advance. :)

    Re: left

    I am not a teacher, but I am a native speaker.

    It sounds correct as you have written it.
