3 children die in north China school canteen collapse

THREE children died and 28 were injured when a primary school canteen in north China's Hebei Province collapsed in heavy snow late yesterday, the local authority said today.

The accident happened at Longfeng Private Primary School at Mingguan Town, Yongnian County, at about 6 pm when the pupils were dining, a county government spokesman said.

Two girls and a boy died when the building collapsed after a second day of heavy snow. Their identities are yet to be made public, he said.

The injured were receiving treatment at a local hospital. The county government had relocated all the students to other schools to continue their studies last night.

The government also issued a notice Wednesday night, asking all the middle and primary schools in the county to suspend classes for two days to check building safety.
