Red Cross Appeal for Ning'an Schoolchildren

On June 10, a flash flood hit Ning'an City in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

A total of 103 died in the flood, including 99 school children, and six others are still missing, according to latest reports released on June 16 by the Ministry of Civil Affairs.
