China mudslides: 13 killed, hundreds stranded

In a major accident, a landslide caused by torrential rain struck a highway in Qin`an County of the northwest Gansu province.



Beijing: Mudslides triggered by heavy
rain killed 13 people and left hundreds others stranded in two
different parts of China on Saturday.

Another six were injured and hospitalised, local
police said.

In a major accident, a landslide caused by torrential
rain struck a highway in Qin`an County of the northwest Gansu
province.

A medium-sized bus and a truck were damaged in the
mudslide, leaving five people dead at the scene, two more dead
en route to hospital and another 11 injured.

Six more people died later in hospital after emergent
medical treatment failed, Xinhua reported.

Meanwhile, more than 800 people and 300-odd motor
vehicles are stranded at a highway in southwest China`s Yunnan
Province after the road was partly covered by a landslide.

The mudslide occurred last night in Fugong County of
Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture.

Mud and rocks from the snow-clad Biluo Mountain fell
to the Wagong Highway, and covered a more-than-100-meter-long
section of the road.
