Beijing: The dangerous chemicals stored at a warehouse in China`s Tianjin city that was rocked by a string of explosions, leaving 50 dead and over 700 injured, have not yet been identified, authorities said on Friday.
Gao Huaiyou, deputy director of Tianjin`s work safety watchdog, cited major discrepancies between the accounts of company management and customs, and damage to the company`s office as reasons they why were unable to identify the chemicals, reported Xinhua news agency.
Cargo is stored in a warehouse for no more than 40 days before being transferred elsewhere, Gao said, adding that the blast sites were redesigned to contain dangerous chemicals.
Wednesday night`s enormous blasts killed 50 people, including 17 fire-fighters. A total of 701 were injured, of whom 70 remain in critical condition.
