Drone swarm

CHINA has launched a swarm of 119 fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), breaking the previous record of a swarm of 67 drones, according to the China Electronics Technology Group Corp. (CETC).

The 119 drones performed catapult-assisted take-offs and formations in the sky.

According to the CETC, “swarm intelligence” is regarded as the core of artificial intelligence of unmanned systems and the future of intelligent unmanned systems.

Zhao Yanjie, an engineer with CETC, said that since drones were invented in 1917, intelligent swarms have become a disruptive force to “change rules of the game.”

Torrential rain

AT least six people died and three others remains unaccounted for after torrential rain lashed southern parts of China from Thursday to Saturday.

Four people died and two are missing in Hubei Province. Two died and another remains missing in Chongqing Municipality, authorities said Saturday.

Heavy rains, coupled with windstorms, caused floods and landslides in several cities in Hubei. A total of 171 houses collapsed, and about 649 people have been evacuated, according to the provincial civil affairs department.

In Chongqing, over 1,300 people have been relocated because of damages to their houses, the municipal flood control and disaster relief headquarters said.

Four workers die

FOUR workers died Saturday at a tower construction site in Southwest China’s Sichuan Province, authorities said.

The four men fell into a foundation pit around

8 a.m., which was filled with water after days of heavy rain in the city of Huaying, said an official with the city’s publicity department.

The construction is managed by a company under China Tower Co., Ltd.

Police are investigating whether the men died from drowning or inhalation of gas.
