Nine dead after train crashes into railway workers in China

Nine people were killed in a railway accident early Friday morning in China's Gansu province, when a train rammed into on-site workers.

The train, which was on route from Urumqi to Hangzhou, crashed into railway workers at around 05:25 on Friday (21:25 GMT) in Jinchang city, local authorities said.

The victims were among more than 50 workers repairing a closed section of track, state broadcaster CCTV said on its news app. It wasn't clear why they were on the other track, which was open at the time and runs in the opposite direction.

Medical and emergency teams have been deployed to carry out rescue efforts, BBC reported.
