Factory blast in eastern China kills at least 68
By Fayen Wong KUNSHAN China (Reuters) - China suffered its worst industrial accident in a year on Saturday when an explosion killed at least 68 people and injured more than 120 at a factory in China that makes wheels for U.S. carmakers, including General Motors. The blast in the wealthy eastern province of Jiangsu occurred around 7:30 a.m. in Kunshan city, about an hour's drive from Shanghai, after an explosion ripped through a workshop that polishes wheel hubs. An preliminary investigation suggested that the blast at Kunshan Zhongrong Metal Products Co Ltd. was triggered when a flame was lit in a dust-filled room, the local government said at a press conference, describing the incident as a serious safety breach.
