An explosion at a petrochemical plant upstream of Harbin

A resident of a Chinese city that has endured four days without water because of a toxic spill is suing the chemical plant that caused it.
An 80km-long slick of highly toxic chemicals has reached the Chinese town of Harbin after flowing down the Songhua river.

A chemical plant explosion has severely polluted one of China's biggest rivers, causing disruption of water supplies for millions of people and pollution fears in neighbouring Russia, according to the government.

Residents of one of China's biggest and coldest cities, where water has been shut off for fear of chemical contamination, are reported to be jamming the airport and railway stations to get out.
