Vietnamese tourists trapped by landslide reach Chinese town
BEIJING (AP) - A group of Vietnamese tourists who became trapped by a landslide amid deadly weeklong storms that have killed at least 86 people have reached a major town, state media reported on Sunday.
At least 100 tourists, including the 38 Vietnamese, became trapped on Friday night in the northwest province of Gansu after a landslide cut off traffic, China's official Xinhua News Agency said.
They were en route to a nature reserve in Sichuan province, which has been hit the hardest by the storms, and had reached accommodation by later that night following road repair work to free them.
They finally arrived in the central city of Xi'an on Sunday morning, but have cancelled their travel plans, Xinhua said, citing local authorities.
