A flash flood in a remote northeastern town in China has slammed into a primary school, killing more than two dozen people, mostly children.
China's official news agency, Xinhua, said the flash flood Friday in the town of Shalan, in Heilongjiang province, killed 29 people, 27 who were students at a primary school.
Media reports say search efforts are under way for another four people, including two students. It is not immediately clear how many people were injured.
More than 350 children, ages six to 14, were at the school when the flood, triggered by heavy rains, hit the area.
