URUMQI, July 26 (Xinhua) -- At least four people died and two others were still missing in a flash flood in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region at around 7 p.m. Thursday, local authorities said.

The rain-triggered flood swept away four vehicles in the county, taking the lives of a 12-year-old girl and a 19-year-old man who were both in a van. Four other people in the van survived.

A car carrying an unknown number of passengers was also swept away.

The bodies of the four victims have been found but at least two people are still missing, rescuers said.

A bus with 42 passengers was swept to the roadside guardrail, injuring the driver and a tour guide.
