The death toll in a massive explosion last week at a pesticide plant in eastern China rose to 78.
The explosion took place at the Chenjiagang Industrial Park in Yancheng city, Jiangsu province.
At least 566 people were still being treated in hospital after Thursday’s blast.
Public anger over safety standards has grown in China over industrial accidents that have marred three decades of swift economic growth.
The government has pledged stricter safety controls at factories, mines, chemical industry parks and other plants to avoid disasters.
China would strengthen the control and management of dangerous chemicals, Ministry of Emergency Management officials said.
Despite repeated government pledges for safety, disasters have hit factories and other industrial plants resulting in hundreds of deaths and injured workers.
