7 people killed and 60 people injured in kindergarten blast in china

Vastavam web: An explosion at a kindergarten in eastern China killed 7 people and injured 60 people.Blasts and other accidents are common in China, because of patchy enforcement of safety rules, although the government has pledged to improve checks to stamp out such incidents.Many parents were picking up their children when the blast took place around 5 p.m. near the entrance of the kindergarten in Xuzhou.Pictures circulating on Chinese social media showed about a dozen women and children lying on the ground in what appeared to be the immediate aftermath of the blast.
One video showed an injured woman with scorched clothing staggering unsteadily, while others sat on a floor holding crying children in their arms.The cause of the blast was also not immediately clear, although online commentators said it could have been a gas canister explosion
