It is the last thing the residents of  Chongqing would have expected to see.

But the Yangtze river, which runs through the  city in south-western China, turned a bright shade of orange-red  yesterday.

The waterway where the Yangtze met the Jialin  River provided a fascinating contrast as the red started to filter into the  other river.

While officials investigate the cause of the  colouring, one fisherman went about his daily business as if nothing had  happened.

Others were so amazed that they collected  samples in water bottles.

Although the cause is yet to be determined,  this is not the first time a river has turned red in China.

Last December, the Jian  River in the city of Luoyang, in the  north Henan province, turned red after  becoming polluted by a powerful dye.

The dye was being dumped into the city’s  storm drain network by two illegal dye  workshops.

Officials raided the factories to shut them  down, and then disassembled their machinery.

According to chapter 16, verse 4 of  the  Bible’s book of Revelations, one of the signs that Armageddon is  near will be  an angel pouring a bowl into the rivers, turning them into  blood.
