China kindergarten explosion: Women and children among casualties reported after blast

Post by Thorin on Thu Jun 15, 2017 1:12 pm

An explosion has rocked a kindergarten in eastern China, with women and children among the casualties reported. The blast happened near the entrance to the building in the city of Fengxian on Thursday afternoon. Local police said an unknown number of people had been injured, including children.

State media reports said people have been hurt and unverified photos purportedly from the scene and posted on social media showed children and adults lying on the ground, some bleeding.

Police said the blast struck at 4.50pm at the Chuangxin Kindergarten in Jiangsu province.

It was unclear whether the blast was an accident or was deliberately caused.

The explosion appeared to have been caused by a bottle of cooking gas, according to local newspaper Xiandaikuaibao on its website.

China has a massive health and safety problem...along with dreadful human rights issues and animal welfare.

No there aren't. There are Hui Muslims in that area but not a lot by any stretch. You are probably thinking of Xinjiang, on the opposite (western end) of China, which is largely and traditionally a Muslim region.

Stop trying to make suggestions based on nonsense.
