In eastern China, an explosion at a pesticide plant in the city of Yancheng Thursday killed at least 47 people and left scores more seriously injured. A government inspection of the plant last year showed more than a dozen violations, including a lack of safety training for managers. It’s the worst industrial disaster in China since a 2015 explosion in Tianjin killed more than 170 people.
