This might help with that task:
mysqlbinlog binary_log_file_name.000001 --start-datetime="2013-02-25 16:45:00"
--stop-datetime="2013-02-25 16:50:00" | grep 'DELETE\|ALTER TABLE\|PARTITION'

If binary logging is enabled, review your logs to ensure that the
changes you think are going into your database, really are. If they
are, look for anything that may remove data from a table like DELETE
commands or ALTER TABLE ... PARTITION ... commands (dropping or resizing
If you haven't already, verify in your error log that your MySQL isn't
being randomly killed by your OS for exhausting its RAM.
If those are both a bust, enable the General Query Log and see if any
other weird commands you don't recognize are being sent to your database.
