Explosion In China Kills At Least 30 People

An explosion killed at least 30 people in a northern Chinese province, a government news agency reported early Friday. The explosion in Shanxi province also injured six people, the Xinhua News Agency said. It didn't give any other details. But Shanxi is a major coal-producing area, and frequently suffers fatal accidents blamed on improperly stored explosives for mining.
