Over 2,000 Russian tourists were stranded in the Chinese town of Heihe on the Russian-Chinese border after a computer virus paralyzed the border's electronic pass entry system, a transportation company official said on Monday.
"According to the Chinese officials, at the customs office in Heihe, a computer virus caused computer systems to shut down on Sunday. Because of this, border crossing was closed until Monday morning," the spokesman said, adding that many of the Russian tourists were forced to spend the night in hotels.
The virus was deleted during the night and the border crossing will be operating normally again on Monday.
