Beijing: 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 Tuesday.
The accident took place last 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, a state-run news agency reported. A further investigation into the cause of the accident is under way.
