China high-speed rail crash

Posted on 2011-07-27
Rail minister Sheng Guangzu apologised for the collision in eastern Zhejiang province, saying the campaign would focus on China's high-speed network.
Thirty-nine people died in Saturday's crash, with nearly 200 people injured.
The government has begun compensating victims' relatives, paying one family $77,500 (£47,000), reports say.
