China starts repairing damaged Great Wall


Repair work Saturday started on a section of the Great Wall that was intentionally damaged by a gold mining company in 2009 in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The section, built in Qin Dynasty (221-207 B.C.) in northern Hohhot, capital of Inner Mongolia, was badly damaged and repair work is badly needed, said Ling Ling, deputy chief of the cultural heritage bureau of Hohhot.

A section of the wall in Qingshuihe County built in the Ming Dynasty (1368 to 1644 A.D.) was also included in the repair plan.

The construction of the Great Wall dates back to around 200 BC when Emperor Qin Shihuang (259-210 B.C.) had fortification walls built to stop invasions from northern tribes.
