Blast in Vietnam film effects warehouse kills 10
HANOI (Reuters) - Twin blasts at a warehouse owned by a cinema special effects expert killed 10 people and reduced three homes to burning rubble in Vietnam's biggest city, state media reported on Sunday.
Teams of firefighters worked through the early hours after the overnight explosions and found three survivors among the bodies buried beneath what was left of the houses in southern Ho Chi Minh City early on Sunday, the Tuoi Tre newspaper said on its website (www.tuoitrenews.vn)
Among the dead was Le Minh Phuong, 58, who worked in pyrotechnics for local films and stored explosives in his home, which doubled as a warehouse, Tuoi Tre said, citing preliminary police investigations.
Six members of Phuong's family, including his six-year-old daughter, were also killed. Police said they believed the explosions were triggered by accident.
Local residents fled after the blasts shook homes located within a 500-metre radius, according to the news website VNExpress (www.vnexpress.net). (Reporting by Hanoi Newsroom; Writing by Martin Petty; Editing by Daniel Magnowski)
