Officials inspecting the aftermath of a deadly warehouse explosion in Tianjin, China detected dangerously high levels of cyanide. The Aug. 12 blasts in one of the country's biggest port cities killed at least 114 people and leveled the surrounding area.
"Cyanide was detected at eight water monitoring spots inside the warning zone, with levels at one spot exceeding limits by 356 times," an official from China's Ministry of Environmental Protection said, according to CNN. "Cyanide pollution is severe inside the warning zone. Outside the zone overall, the amount of cyanide detected is at normal range," he said.
Local authorities had said on Monday that they were working to clear the area of hazardous chemicals. But when inspectors from the Tianjin Environmental Protection Bureau tested the water around the blast site on Tuesday, they found alarmingly high levels of the chemical in several different locations.
The warehouse likely contained around 700 tons of sodium cyanide, which is over 70 times the legal limit, according to the Guardian.
Cyanide poses a huge threat to humans. As Quartz points out, cyanide and water can form a toxic gas called hydrogen cyanide that is dangerous and even deadly when inhaled. When mixed with water, cyanide can combust. Officials worry that rain could trigger more explosions in the same area.
According to Reuters, the warehouse was also closer than allowed to nearby houses.
A top U.N. safety official on Thursday criticized China for not sharing critical information that could have prevented the blast. According to the New York Times, workplace safety issues run rampant across the...

Thai police on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for the main suspect in Monday's bombing of a Bangkok shrine. The attack killed 20 people and injured over 100.
According to the AP, police are seeking to charge the suspect with "conspiracy to commit premeditated murder and charges related to possession of unauthorized explosives and weapons."
Police also released an official police sketch of the alleged assailant on Wednesday.
Here's the image:
On Tuesday, police released CCTV footage of the suspect taken right before the attack. In the video, the alleged bomber is wearing a bright yellow shirt and is holding a backpack.
"The yellow shirt guy is not just the suspect. He is the bomber," a police spokesman told the Associated Press.
Police said on Wednesday said they believed the suspect had accomplices.
"He didn't do it alone, for sure. It's a network," said Thai national police chief Somyot Poompanmoun.
As Reuters points out, the information that Thai authorities have offered paints a hazy picture of who is actually behind the attack. From Reuters:
Police on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for a "foreign" man, apparently basing this only on the fair colour of his skin, but senior officers publicly disagreed over whether or not he was wearing a disguise.
Two other men seen in the CCTV footage are also suspects, police said, without giving details of their appearance.
Police don't know whether the suspects belonged to a homegrown or foreign militant outfit.
The bomb had been placed inside the Erawan Shrine, a sacred Hindu site that is popular with both visitors and locals. Fears have emerged that tourism, which is one of Thailand's main industries, might suffer in the aftermath of the attack.

Sweden has ended part of its sexual assault investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Reuters reported on Thursday.
Three of the four sexual assault allegations against Assange were set to expire within a week. The statute of limitations for most sex crimes is five years. Sweden still plans to pursue rape charges, which don't expire for another five years, according to Al Jazeera.
Assange has denied all charges.
Assange, who has been living in asylum at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012, was never interviewed by Swedish authorities for the sex crime allegations. According to Swedish law, the BBC points out, a suspect can't be charged until formally interviewed by authorities.
Sweden has been unable to extradite Assange for an interview, and he refuses to voluntarily leave the UK for fear he'll be sent to America. Assange has been wanted in the U.S. since he published hoards of classified government documents in...
