Anger builds over deadly Chinese train crash

As Adrienne Mong and Bo Gu report on our Behind the Wall blog today, Chinese netizens have reacted with shock and anger to Saturday's deadly train crash in Wenzhou. 

"Thunder makes two trains collide.  A truck drives past a bridge, then the bridge collapses.  You get kidney stones by drinking milk.  None of us is exempted.  Today's China is a train running in the thunderstorm, and we are not outsiders.  We are all passengers," said one Chinese comment on Twitter.

Amid the outrage and sorrow, there was a glimmer of hope as a 2-year-old girl was pulled alive from the wreckage 21 hours after the crash.

The accident occurred on the evening of July 23 when the D301 train, travelling from Beijing to Fuzhou, collided with the D3115 train, travelling from Hangzhou to Fuzhou, which had stalled on the line after a suspected lightning strike.
