An explosion has rocked a chemical plant in Tongling, in the province of Anhui in eastern China, local media outlets report.

Chinese chemical facilities have seen a number of explosions lately. The deadliest, which killed 165 people at the port of Tianjin in August 2015, prompted President Xi Jinping to vow that safety standards would be improved, while urging authorities to learn “extremely profound” lessons “paid for with blood.”
