Part of China’s Great Wall collapses due to strong winds: Officials
BEIJING: A 500-year-old section of China’s Great Wall called “Moon Gate” in northern Shanxi province has collapsed after being hit by strong winds, officials said.
The section had been the remains of a former watchtower on the Guangwu Great Wall section built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1662). It was called the “Moon Gate” by Great Wall aficionados due to its round shape, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Officials said the section collapsed due to high winds, refuting rumours that the historic attraction broke down because local villagers had been using their bricks for construction.
