A barbecue restaurant in northwestern China was struck by a devastating cooking gas explosion, killing 31 people and leaving seven other individuals injured

The tragic incident occurred at approximately 8:40 p.m. on Wednesday, during a bustling evening on a prominent street in Yinchuan, the capital of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.

According to the official Xinhua News Agency, as people were gathering to celebrate the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival, the explosion tore through the establishment.
