Tractor driver kills 11 in rampage

Eleven people were killed and more than a dozen injured after a drunken man went on a rampage behind the wheel of a tractor in northern China.

A news release issued by the Yuanshi county government in Hebei province said 38-year-old Li Xianliang was drinking when he killed a customer on Sunday at the Hongyuan coal depot where he worked driving a shovel loader.

Li then drove his loader down an adjacent road, smashing into cars, buses, motorcycles, trucks and roadside shops.

The news release said eight people were killed outright and 20 injured, while a Yuanshi county spokesman said three more people died in the hospital.
