Four dead, 16 hurt after workers clash in China
Brawl turns deadly as workers use explosives to settle parking dispute
Two groups of workers are still being questioned after a brawl turned deadly, resulting in the deaths of four people in an explosion on a construction site in China last week.
The fight erupted when workers from the Wuguan highway construction crew, a section of the Lanzhou-Haikou highway, got into a fight with workers from the Lanzhou-Chongqing railway construction team over a parking dispute on a construction site in the northwestern Gansu Province
An official statement, released by local authorities, said workers from the Lanzhou-Chongqing railway construction team then detonated explosives to seek revenge. The explosion happened around 2.30pm, and the incident sparked a major emergency response.
The four victims were all from the Wuguan highway construction team. Two of them were killed at the scene, one died on route to the hospital, another died in the hospital, and 16 remain hospitalised.
Investigations are continuing.
China is still coming to terms with the train smash that killed at least 35 and injured 210 on July 23. The cause of the crash is still udner investigation, but it's believed one train lost power due to a lightning strike, and a bullet train following behind crashed into it.
The accident took place on a bridge near the city of Wenzhou in Zhejiang province, some 1,380 km south of Beijing.
