China experiences coldest winter in the past century
China seems to be experiencing one of the coldest winters it has had in the past century.
Millions remained stranded in China on Monday ahead of the biggest holiday of the year as parts of the country suffered their coldest winter in a century.
Freezing weather has killed scores of people and left travellers stranded before the Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival — the only opportunity many people have to take a holiday all year.
It has also brought China unwanted negative publicity six months before the Summer Olympics in Beijing.
