Shanghai holds 9 over house collapse

Shanghai authorities are holding nine people in an investigation into why a nearly finished 13-story apartment building collapsed, prompting the city to order safety checks at other construction sites, the city government said yesterday.
Meanwhile, rescuers were searching a river in northeast China after part of a road bridge caved in early yesterday, sending vehicles plunging into the water below.
Rescuers had saved all of the 16 drivers and passengers on seven vehicles that fell into the river in Tieli, a city in Heilongjiang province, Tieli's mayor, Zhang Yang, told state-run China Central Television in a nationwide broadcast.
