    Rocket launch

    China on Saturday successfully launched its new generation carrier rocket Long March-7 from the Wenchang space launch center in South China’s Hainan Province.

    In a cloud of white smoke, the rocket ascended* against the dark sky, trailing* a vast column of flame. Space fans in specially set up viewing areas erupted with applause. Minutes later, Zhang Youxia, commander-in-chief of China’s manned space program, declared the launch a success.

    Tornado death toll

    Thousands of rescuers and emergency workers have been saving lives and restoring order to counties in East China’s Jiangsu Province after a fierce tornado killed 99 people and left 846 injured.

    A powerful tornado* and hailstorm* pummeled the farmland and factories in Yancheng City, Jiangsu on Thursday, toppling houses, damaging wire poles and destroying a solar panel factory where hazardous* chemicals had been stored.

    9 factories closed

    Chinese authorities have shut down nine factories and detained some executives after reports that toxic industrial waste was used to make running tracks widely used at schools, official media said on Thursday.

    Smelly synthetic* sports fields and athletics circuits, along with students falling sick from exposure to them, have regularly made headlines in China in recent years. Parents of pupils at an elite elementary school in Beijing protested this month saying that their children suffered from nose bleeds and allergic reactions after using running tracks.

    Dog meat festival

    The traditional midsummer dog meat festival in a southern Chinese city has opened amid criticism, and it seems that the festive air has been somewhat diluted this year.

    The festival is held in Yulin City, the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, every summer solstice*. Called a carnival* of cruelty by many, the festival has been bombarded* by animal rights activists and dog lovers for years. “Business is especially bad this year. I could sell over 30 dogs every day in previous years, but now I can only sell five at the most,” said a butcher surnamed Zhong in the city. (SD-Agencies)
