China: Rail collision kills 24

  : 7 January 1999
Tiefa, China: Twenty four people were killed when a freight train collided with a passenger train close to Tiefa city.
Details of the accident are sparse. It is believed that the both trains belonged to state-owned Tiefa Mining Bureau and that the passenger train was carrying a number its employees. An investigation into the cause of the accident has begun.

Official reports indicated that 23 people had been injured. However, a statement from the Information Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Movement in China, based in Hong Kong suggests that the number may be as high as 100 and that 10 of these are critical.
