The Oc­to­ber 24 blast in Xin­min tore through five pre­fab­ri­cated build­ings, de­stroy­ing or dam­ag­ing 58 oth­ers. Au­thor­i­ties cen­sored dis­cus­sion of the in­ci­dent on­line. An ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion found the in­ci­dent was caused by il­le­gally stored ex­plo­sives which re­sulted in three peo­ple being ar­rested.
