Families of China crash victims take compensation
10 families of China high-speed train crash victims accept compensation
By The Associated Press

BEIJING (AP) ' China's state news agency says 10 families of the victims of a high-speed train crash have agreed to accept compensation from the government.

Xinhua News Agency reported Saturday that 10 families will receive about $142,000 each for their relatives who died in a train accident in the eastern city of Wenzhou that killed 40 and left more than 190 injured.

Public anger toward the government over safety concerns has grown after a high-speed train rammed into another a week ago.

In the latest attempt to assuage public anger, authorities nearly doubled the amount of compensation for each victim this week from an initial $78,000 to $142,000.
