Two trackwalkers returen to the train station against a strong wind in Turpan, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on April 28, 2011. On that day, the dust weather hit two places of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Kumul and Turpan. The sandstrom made the most parts of Kumul and Turpan in poor visibility. Meanwhile, the South Xinjiang Railway had to be closed due to the hard weather. (Photo by Jiang Xiaoming, Xinhua)
