China chemical spill kills thousands of fish
2013-09-05 09:12:34 | (0 Comments)
State media are reporting that Chinese authorities have recovered about 100 tonnes of poisoned fish from a river in central Hubei province.
The Xinhua news agency said the fish died after a chemical factory discharged ammonia into the Fuhe river.
Environmental officials blamed a nearby local firm for the incident.
This latest industrial incident comes after more than 16,000 dead pigs were recovered earlier this year from a river that runs through Shanghai.
China has faced increasing pollution problems as a result of decades of fast economic growth.
