Landslide also ruptured national gas pipeline, causing explosion
Scores of people were missing Sunday after a landslide occurred in an industrial park in southern China that buried dozens of buildings, sparked an explosion from a ruptured national gas pipeline, and forced the evacuation of roughly 900 people.
"I saw red earth and mud running towards the company building," Xinhua quotes one local worker as saying.
Official reports from the government-controlled media left out the cause of the landslide in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, the New York Times reports.
