disaster and accident
Twelve construction workers were killed and seven others injured when their makeshift house was damaged by a collapsed wall in China’s northern Shanxi province, officials said on Wednesday.

The accident took place on Tuesday evening at a construction site of a coal cleaning plant of Dacheng Liyuan Coalification Co., Ltd. in Pingshu Village, Shouyang County, local officials of Jinzhong City said.

An initial investigation indicated that the wall was toppled as a result of rainstorms, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Rescue work has ended by Wednesday morning.

A further investigation into the cause of the accident is under way.
