    A massive explosion has ripped through a region in China.

    Bright flames and black smoke were seen from what is thought to be a chemical factory this evening.

    The explosion was seen and heard in the industrial zone of Lijin, Dongying City of Shandong, just before 11.30pm local time.

    It is not yet known if there are any injuries or fatalities.

    The blast comes just a fortnight after another huge explosion in the country killed dozens and injured hundreds.

    The explosion a fortnight ago was so large that they were seen by satellites in space, sent shockwaves through apartment blocks kilometres away in the port city of 15 million people.

    More to come.

    if true, i dare say somebody is definitely targeting chinese economy.

    or

    effects of lack of quality controls in that country are showing up at the same time, this is happening too frequently. Tianjin got into news because of the scale, i remember reading somewhere that there were 50 small industrial accidents this year alone.

    Is there any terrorist hand in this and earlier? :hmm:

    Last explosion resulted in 150 odd dead.

    More than likely just coincidence.
