This aerial photo taken on July 24, 2011 shows rescue operations continuing on the wreckages of two high-speed trains that collided the night before in the town of Shuangyu, on the outskirts of Wenzhou in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang. China has ordered an 'urgent' overhaul of rail safety, state media said Sunday, after 43 people were killed in the worst accident ever to hit the country's high-speed train network. The collision of two trains in eastern China is likely to raise fresh questions over the rapid roll-out of the country's high-speed lines, the world's biggest at more than 5,000 miles.
