At least 13 dead in Chinese steel plant blast
Tuesday 21 February 2012
At least 13 people have been killed and 17 hurt in a blast at a steel plant in north eastern China.
The state-run Xinhua News Agency said the blast late last night in Anshan city in Liaoning province happened when a mould exploded in a steel-casting plant.
The cause of the explosion was not given.
Rapid economic growth and lax safety measures mean that industrial accidents are relatively common in China.
