Double explosion rocks Hyundai-Vinashin, killing one and injuring four

Hanoi: One man was killed and four seriously burnt, including a South Korean, in gas explosions at a Vietnamese shipyard, a company official tolf Agence France Presse today.
Three Vietnamese technicians were burnt in a blast Tuesday after opening a gas pipeline on a ship under maintenance at the Hyundai- Vinashin shipyard, a South Korean-Vietnamese joint venture, said the company's administrative official, who did not wish to be named.
After taking out the injured, a South Korean and a Vietnamese officer from the company labour safety department returned to the vessel to inspect the accident site when a second explosion occurred.
"The second blast killed the 43-year-old Vietnamese while the South Korean official suffered serious injury," the official told AFP.
