China train crash victims' families demand answers

China has ordered a two-month nationwide safety campaign for its railways amid public outrage at a train crash on Saturday that killed nearly 40 people.

Rail minister Sheng Guangzu apologised for the collision in eastern Zhejiang province, saying the campaign would focus on China's high-speed network.

Chinese media say the government has begun compensating victims' relatives.
