The Myanmar Times - - World -

Chi­nese author­i­ties de­tained 13 peo­ple over the week­end in connection with a con­struc­tion col­lapse at a power sta­tion which killed at least 74 peo­ple, the lat­est in­dus­trial ac­ci­dent in the coun­try. A plat­form more than 70 me­tres (230 feet) high in a cool­ing tower at the Gan­neng Fengcheng power sta­tion in the eastern prov­ince of Jiangxi crashed to the ground on Novem­ber 24. Pic­tures of the scene showed a grey mass of con­crete slabs, steel gird­ers and twisted metal splayed in a heap on the ground in­side a large round struc­ture.
