In Taiwan’s capital, one man was killed and five others were injured when a construction crane fell on their bus said an official.

The six were part of a tour group of 25, from southern Guangdong province, who had to be pulled from their bus after it was smashed by the falling crane, the official said.

The crane fell on the bus from the 37th storey of a building under construction near Taipei 101, once the world’s tallest skyscraper.

Local television stations said two of the five injured were in a critical condition.
