SHANGHAI -- Senior high school students flocked back to class in Shanghai on Monday as China's financial capital slowly rebounds from a grueling two-month COVID lockdown, but nervous organizers of the city's international film festival still called off the event.

Teen Xu Jiarong said she was excited to get back to school after she and most of the city's 25 million residents were shut indoors in late March as Shanghai imposed the country's biggest lockdown of the pandemic.
