BEIJING — Twenty-eight children were crushed to death Monday in a narrow stairway while running to answer a school assembly bell, the China Youth News said today.

The children, most under 10, became jammed into the unlit stairway because school authorities had not unlocked the door at the other end. Some fell, and those behind piled on top of them.
