Dozens killed as bullet trains collide in China

A Chinese bullet train manufacturer today recalled fifty four trains following a crash last month that killed forty people.

The recall adds to signs Beijing is scaling back ambitious expansion plans for a high-speed rail network.

China launched an overhaul of the multibillion-dollar bullet train network after the July crash.

A moratorium was imposed on new rail projects this week and the railway minister announced a reduction in train speeds.
