KUNMING, Aug 2 – A landslide that occurred early on Friday disrupted trains on a railway in southwest China’s Yunnan Province, the local railway bureau said.

Eleven trains were halted and 17 others were forced to take detours on a railway linking the city of Neijiang in Sichuan Province and the city of Liupanshui in Guizhou Province after a landslide that occurred around midnight near the Daguan train station in Yunnan, an official with the Chengdu Railway Bureau in Sichuan said.

Repair work is under way.

One railway worker was killed in the landslide, a Daguan county government official said.

The landslide also disrupted traffic on nearby Laoyicha Road and damaged power lines, he said.
