The government will equally compensate the families of 10 people who died in a highway bridge collapse in Henan province, officials at the rescue headquarters said on Monday.

The news came after reports quoted relatives of the victims born in rural areas saying they will get 180,000 yuan ($28,800) in compensation, or 220,000 yuan less than their counterparts from urban districts.

The government will apply the same compensation standards to every victim and will comply with the Supreme People's Court's interpretation of compensation for personal injuries, local authorities said.
