Trains collide in eastern China

State media reports "heavy casualties" in pre-dawn collision near city of Zibo.


    In one of the worst rail accidents in recent times, 126 people were killed and more than 200 injured when two trains collided in central China's Hunan province in 1997.
     
    In January of this year a high-speed train ploughed into a group of rail workers conducting track repairs in eastern China, killing 18 people.
