New Year firework deaths in China
Fireworks set off for the Chinese lunar new year have killed 35 people.
Millions of dollars of damage has been recorded too, mainly through the 7,480 fires caused by the fireworks. In Beijing alone, there were 347 injuries. In Hebei province, the last standing tower of a 1,600-year-old city gate was destroyed in a blaze.
Fireworks had been banned in Beijing from 1993 to 2006 because of the dangers but, due to public pressure, the ban had been lifted.
