Yum said sales at restaurants open at least a year were down 10 percent in China for June, an improvement from a 19 percent drop in May. US sales rose 2 percent at Taco Bell, 3 percent at KFC, and 2 percent at Pizza Hut. Yum earned $281 million, or 61 cents per share, vs. $331 million, or 69 cents, a year ago.
