1 Dead 270 Injured in China Fireworks Furore

Posted by Author on February 19, 2007

Radio Australia, 19/02/2007-

One person has been killed and 270 others injured in China’s capital, as millions of fireworks were set off to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

Officials says although deaths and injuries are often linked to the traditional pyrotechnics, the problems were magnified in Beijing this year, as a flood of unsafe, illegal fireworks hit the market.

A 25-year-old man died of head injuries in hospital on Sunday, the official start of the Year of the Pig, after setting off fireworks the previous night.

A 12-year ban on fireworks in Beijing was lifted in 2006 after authorities said they were satisfied that safety standards had improved.

However city authorities seized 560 million substandard firecrackers this year, more than four times the amount confiscated in 2006.
