The death toll in a series of explosions in the Chinese city of Tianjin has increased to 112.

The death toll in a series of explosions that have occurred in the warehouse of hazardous substances in the Chinese city of Tianjin has increased to 112, with the identity of only twenty-four people known so far, Chinese Central Television (CCTV) reported on Sunday.

Earlier, it was reported that the death toll from Wednesday’s massive blasts in the Chinese port of Tianjin had reached 104 people.

“The death toll has risen to 112 people, 24 people were identified,” the CCTV reported.

On Saturday, new smaller explosions were heard in Tianjin, which prompted the Chinese authorities to start an evacuation of the citizens within an at least 1.1-mile range of the explosion site. The police confirmed the highly toxic chemical sodium cyanide had been found near the site.

On Wednesday, two blasts occurred in a warehouse in the Chinese city of Tianjin, a key port and petrochemical hub northeast of Beijing. The powerful explosions and a following fire were triggered by flammable goods stored at the warehouse along with hazardous chemicals such as sodium cyanide.
