Mysterious blast kills at least two people

mysterious blast kills at least two peopleA major explosion killed at least two people in the eastern Chinese port city of Ningbo on 26 November. Around 30 people were injured, some very seriously. The blast happened in a disused factory building and was so powerful that it levelled many buildings and windows were shattered up to one kilometre from the blast site. The actual cause of this explosion is unclear, but it is suspected that either chemicals were being illegally stored there or the factory was operating unlicensed. Unfortunately industrial incidents in China are still very common and up to 30,000 workers a year are believed to be killed while at their workplaces.
