A gas pipeline operated by China National Petroleum Corp exploded on Sunday night in Guizhou Province in southwest China, injuring 24 people, with three in critical condition. The blast occurred in the Shazi District of Qianxinan city in Guizhou Province, Xinhua reported. No deaths have been reported.
