중국 남동부 지역에서 구조대원들이 태풍으로 인한 산사태로 무너진 경찰 훈련학교에서 시신 50구를 끌어냈다고 중국 관영 신화 통신이 보도했습니다.

신화 통신은 7천명의 군 병력이 동원돼 여전히 실종 상태에 있는 36명에 대한 색출 작업을 펼치고 있다고 전했습니다.

관계자들은 푸젠성에서 2일 밤 태풍 ‘룽왕’으로 홍수와 산사태가 초래돼 군사 훈련 학교 건물 두 동이 무너졌다고 말했습니다.

China's official news agency reports that rescuers in the southeast of the country have recovered 50 bodies from a police academy hit by a typhoon-triggered landslide.

Xinhua says some seven-thousand soldiers are still searching for 36 people who remain missing.

Officials said heavy rains from Typhoon Longwang on Sunday caused flooding and landslides in the Fujian province capital city (Fuzhou), washing away two training school barracks that housed police recruits.

In a separate development, Xinhua says authorities have evacuated about 13-thousand people from their homes in central China along (the Hanjiang River) a tributary of the Yangtze River.

It says heavy rains in Hubei province have cut off several roads, and more rain is expected in the next two days.
