6 children drown in river in China

   BEIJING (AP) -- A local government in northern China says six children have drowned while skating on a river.
   The children aged 5 to 11 were skating together Saturday afternoon near a village in Pingyao county in Shanxi province.
   After residents alerted police, rescuers were sent to the scene. About an hour later, they pulled four bodies. It took another 1 1/2 hour to find the bodies of the remaining two children.
   The county government statement says an investigation is ongoing. Calls to the authority and police rang unanswered Sunday.
