Updated: 2005-08-31 17:30

Two children are ready to have lunch at their newly built dinning room at the Shalan Primary School in Shalan Town, Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province August 31, 2005. The school was devastated by a flash flood June 10 that killed 105 children. Officials blamed the school's location - it is on much lower ground than surrounding buildings - for the high death toll. Then the National Development and Reform Commission allocated 6.9 million yuan for the rebuilding of the school. The teaching building was put into use Wednesday. [newsphoto]
