There was an explosion in Yulin with at least 10 people dead.

reprot below from BBC

The death toll from a powerful explosion that destroyed buildings in the Chinese city of Yulin has risen to at least 10, with more than 150 people injured.

There are reports of a large crater where a two-storey building once stood, and images show widespread damage, with rubble in the streets.
The blast occurred Monday afternoon local time near a hospital.
Reports suggest illegally stored explosives might be to blame.
It appears the hospital was damaged in the explosion, which ripped through a nearby residential building.

State-run news agency Xinhua reported that more than 70 firefighters were sent to Xinmin township in Fugu county, where several people are believed to remain trapped inside collapsed buildings.


Did people learn nothing from the terrible explosion in Tianjin last year?
What is wrong with people?

Actually, explosions used to happen quite frequently in the not too distant past when no one cooked  ...

yet people failed to learn from last year.
This was another case of inappropriately stored explosives.
