Oil Chairman facing punishment for explosion

The Qingdao oil explosion has now led to a "disciplinary" punishment of the Chairman of the Chinese oil giant Sinopec.

48 people stand to be punished following one of the most serious environmental disasters in China in many years. 62 people were killed when oil giant Sinopec's pipeline in the port city of Qingdao burst into flames in November last year.

Senior officials from the Chinese government have now investigated the matter, and the result is that 48 people stand to face punishment, though the authorities have yet to inform what kind of punishments are being discussed.
