Chinese children die in school wall collapse

Two Chinese children were killed and four others injured when a wall at their school collapsed on top of them.

Officials in Zhenxiong county, Yunnan province, said sacks of coal had been stacked against one side of the brick wall, pushing it over.

Local government official Song Yufeng said the children were all around the age of 12.

Correspondents say the safety of school buildings in China has been called into question in the past.

Shoddy construction was blamed for the collapse of many schools during a major earthquake in 2008 that killed thousands.

In the latest incident, the four injured children were in a stable condition at a hospital in Linkou, a report on the website yunnan.cn said.

The two victims, a boy and a girl, died on the way to hospital, the report said.
