Relatives of China train crash victims mourn

Saturday`s accident near the city of Wenzhou has triggered public anger over what caused the crash.

Wenzhou: Around two dozen grieving relatives of victims of a high-speed train crash have been laying flowers at the site of the accident that killed 39 people and prompted a public outcry.

The family members gathered on Friday at the muddy spot under a viaduct from which four train cars plunged after one bullet train rammed into another that had stalled. They declined to speak to the media.

As a drizzle fell, relatives knelt as they burned incense and paper near a pillar of the viaduct on which a poem mourning the crash victims had been scribbled.
