Medical personnel transport a victim of a factory explosion, at a hospital in KunshanBy Fayen Wong KUNSHAN China (Reuters) - China suffered its worst industrial accident in a year on Saturday when an explosion killed at least 68 people and injured more than 120 at a factory in China that makes wheels for U.S. carmakers, including General Motors. The blast in the wealthy eastern province of Jiangsu occurred around 7:30 a.m. in Kunshan city, about an hour's drive from Shanghai, after an explosion ripped through a workshop that polishes wheel hubs. An preliminary investigation suggested that the blast at Kunshan Zhongrong Metal Products Co Ltd. was triggered when a flame was lit in a dust-filled room, the local government said at a press conference, describing the incident as a serious safety breach.

Debris is seen at the crash site of Air Algerie flight AH5017 near the northern Mali town of GossiTwo people originally believed to have travelled on an Air Algerie plane that crashed in Mali last week did not board the flight, reducing the official death toll to 116, a senior official in Burkina Faso said on Friday. The McDonnell Douglas MD-83 operated by Spain's Swiftair on behalf of Air Algerie crashed last Thursday, shortly after taking off from Ouagadougou en route for Algiers. General Gilbert Diendere, head of Burkina Faso's crisis agency, said that 118 names were on a passenger list drawn up by Air Algerie but two people did not board the flight. One was a passenger who fell ill and cancelled their ticket before the flight and another was an Air Algerie agent who did not board.

An Emirates Airlines aircraft lands at the Emirates terminal at Dubai International AirportDubai's Emirates said it had suspended flights to Guinea, one of the west African countries affected by an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus. "The safety of our passengers and crew is of the highest priority and will not be compromised," it said  The Ebola outbreak, which began in Guinea and has spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone, has killed more than 700, making it the deadliest since the virus was discovered almost 40 years ago. International airlines association IATA said on Thursday the World Health Organization was not recommending travel restrictions or border closures due to the outbreak, and there would be a low risk to other passengers if an infected person flew. Some pan-African carriers have suspended operations to Liberia and Sierra Leone, where Emirates does not fly.
