Safety standards of school buildings have been a public concern in China since many collapsed during a devastating earthquake in 2008.

Thousands of school children were among the almost 90,000 dead, leading to a public outcry over shoddy construction and the lack of safety measures.

Five children were killed earlier in the week in eastern China, when the wall at the side of a basketball court suddenly collapsed, officials said.
