Εικόνες απόλυτης καταστροφής στην Κίνα

Ανυπολόγιστες είναι οι καταστροφές μετά τη μεγάλη έκτασης πυρκαγιά που ξέσπασε σε αποθήκη στην πόλη Τιαντζίν της βόρειας Κίνας και κόστισε τη ζωή σε 44 ανθρώπους.

 

Από τις ισχυρές εκρήξεις καταστράφηκαν παρακείμενα κτίρια και αυτοκίνητα, ενώ ο ουρανός είχε σκοτεινιάσει από τους καπνούς. Ανάμεσα στους νεκρούς είναι και εννέα πυροσβέστες που έχασαν τη ζωή τους στην προσπάθειά τους να θέσουν υπό έλεγχο την πυρκαγιά.

Η πυρκαγιά ξέσπασε όταν πήρε φωτιά ένα φορτίο με εκρηκτικά μέσα στην αποθήκη όπου φυλάσσονταν με αποτέλεσμα να σημειωθούν δύο ισχυρές εκρήξεις. Ο αριθμός των τραυματιών ανέρχεται σε περίπου 400.
