A factory explosion in a port city south of Shanghai on Sunday killed two people and injured at least 30 others as it knocked down buildings and left streets littered with damaged cars and debris, news reports said.

The explosion struck a factory in a riverfront neighborhood in Ningbo, one of China’s busiest ports, the official Xinhua News Agency and other outlets reported. A police statement said the cause of the 8.55am blast was under investigation.

Television images showed cars twisted and mangled by the force of the explosion, a plume of grey smoke rising in the sky, and debris scattered for dozens of metres around the site of the incident.

Footage showed rescuers wearing helmets carrying injured people away from the area, while others stood over a person lying on the ground.

According to CCTV, eyewitnesses said there were “a large number of injured people” in the city, one of China’s largest ports, which sits just south of Shanghai.

At least 30 people were taken to the local hospital and rescue efforts were continuing, the report said.

The Communist Party’s People’s Daily said on Twitter that no one lived at site of the explosion but garbage collectors might have been working there.

Why wouldn't it or what do you mean? The world over news is always about greed, power, sex and disasters. When in a Beijing market, a woman was very excited to learn I was from Kenya. She had read the Akuku Danger story in their local newspaper.
