A charter plane arranged by the Chinese government has taken off from Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo, to take 31 wounded Chinese workers home. The Chinese nationals were injured last week in a blast at a weapons depot.

The wounded workers will receive medical treatment in hospitals in Beijing. The blasts, which the local government said was caused by an electrical circuit at an arms depot in Brazzaville, claimed more than 200 lives and wounded over 1,500. Six Chinese workers out of about 140 who were working at a nearby construction site were killed in the blasts.
