China snow strands ‘nearly 100,000’ at Guangzhou station
Heavy snow has disrupted public transport in southern China, stranding tens of thousands of people outside a rail station, police say. The crowd outside Guangzhou station swelled to nearly 100,000 at its peak on Monday night, police said.
The rare snow has coincided with the run-up to Chinese New Year – where hundreds of millions of migrant workers travel home to see their families. Central China has experienced some its coldest weather in years.
