China has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, particularly among rural women, an expert on suicide prevention said yesterday.

Yang Fude, vice-president of Beijing Hui Long Guan Hospital, said China is the only country where suicides among women outnumber men.

"It is also one of the few countries where rural suicides outnumber urban suicides," he said on World Suicide Prevention Day.
