Posted: 03/3/2014 2:41 pm

At least one person is dead after an explosion tore apart a restaurant in Dongguan around noon time today (March 3).

Reports are just coming in, but photos from a Dongguan Journal reporter on site show a lot of destruction at a building on Qifeng Road in Dongcheng District, which is the city’s Central Business District. One person has apparently been confirmed dead, with at least 15 others injured. It’s believed the explosion was caused by a gas leak, and not terrorism.

    I hope all those sink holes are caused by negligence and not terrorist acts…

        I wish I did, The Fred Fong, I wish I did… Pollution is instead a great social glue, it makes people to stay at home and to tighten their bonds… We all should the Central Committee for the pollution.
