Workers move mud away from the base of a rail track as a bullet train passes by a section of railway in Putian, East China's Fujian province, Sept 2, 2011. A mudslide triggered by heavy rain occurred at 6:25 am Thursday near a section of railway connecting the city of Putian to Xianyou county, stopping 14 bullet trains on Thursday. The affected section reopened by 9 am after initial repairs, with the speed of passing bullet trains slowed to accommodate repairs, according to authorities from the Fuzhou train station.
