Update (via Bernama): TIANJIN EXPLOSIONS KILL AT LEAST 42, INJURE OVER 400

Two powerful explosions at a “dangerous materials” warehouse jolted China’s northeastern Tianjin on Wednesday night, leaving at least 42 people dead, including nine firefighters, and over 400 wounded.

The incident happened before midnight on Thursday; netizens on China-Twitter such as Weibo posted images of the blasts which resembled a huge mushroom cloud.

More than 1000 firefighters and 143 fire engines were dispatched to the scene since last night and massive rescue efforts were underway, the Tianjin Fire Department said on its official Weibo account.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for an all-out effort to save the injured while Premier Li Keqiang vowed a thorough investigation and open and transparent information disclosure to the public, Xinhua news agency reported.
