A landslide has derailed a train on the Guangzhou-Beijing railway, causing slight injuries to five people, reports Guangzhou Daily.
The landslide was caused by heavy rain. It hit train T171 at around 5am on Thursday near Shakou, in Foshan, about 20km north of the City of Qingyuan in Guangdong.
The train had just left the station at Nanchang and was headed towards Guangzhou. Pictures taken at the scene show dirt coming in through the train windows, covering the train walls.
The passengers are reported to have been evacuated. Emergency response teams have been sent out.
