SHANGHAI (AP) - China's state-run Xinhua News Agency is reporting that 35 people have been killed in a stampede during the city's New Year's celebrations.
The report cites the Shanghai government in saying that another 42 people were injured.
The report says the death and injuries occurred at the city's riverfront Bund area, which can be jammed with spectators for major events.
One Xinhua photo from the scene shows at least one person doing chest compressions on a shirtless person while other people lay on the ground nearby. Another photo shows the area ringed by police.
