Beijing sources reported that huge explosion outside a chemical plant in China's northern Hebei province on Wednesday killed at least 22 people and left as many others injured the second major industrial accident in the country in the last four days. Accordingly the blast occurred outside the Hebei Shenghua Chemical Industry in Zhangjiakou, Qiaodong district around 12:40 am, igniting a fire that engulfed nearby vehicles, the officials were quoted as saying by a Shanghai based website.
Meanwhile an industrial safety official, identified only as Wu, said that one of the trucks lined up outside the plant to deliver chemicals had exploded, setting off a chain reaction that engulfed other trucks. Accordingly Chinese news reports, and images from the scene, indicated that a fiery explosion near the plant had set around 50 vehicles ablaze, including dozens of trucks, and sent a dark plume of smoke into the night sky.
Meanwhile employees at the Shenghua plant said operation has been suspended out of safety concern. Moreover industrial safety is a major concern in China, where requirements for the storage and transport of chemicals and other dangerous products are often weakly enforced and this is the second major industrial explosion in China in the last four days.
Pawan Kalyan - The Faded Power? Powerstar Pawan Kalyan got a dream start to his career - a beginning that any debutant would crave for.

However, he followed up with back to back successful flicks, Gokulamlo Seetha, Suswagatham, Tholi Prema (a cult classic that is still celebrated), Thammudu, Badri and Khushi.
