New rains kill 21 more in flood-hit China: Xinhua
BEIJING (AFP) - Heavy rains killed 21 construction workers as flooding spread to north-west China, state media said on Wednesday, after severe weather in other parts of the country left more than 130 dead.
Sudden rainstorms and hail battered Haixi in Qinghai province, "washing away" the workers on Tuesday evening, the official Xinhua news agency said.
"The workers were repairing a construction site at the time when the tragedy happened," it added.
A search for three missing people was under way.
