According to a CBS news article, an incident occurred in the northeastern Chinese port of Tianjin, where a warehouse storing dangerous materials was hit by massive explosions. The tragedy resulted in the loss of at least 17 lives and left hundreds injured. Witnesses and officials reported that the explosions, which occurred late Wednesday, unleashed enormous fireballs that illuminated the night sky. 

The impact was so powerful that doors of nearby buildings were knocked off and windows shattered, even several miles away from the site. China's state broadcaster, CCTV, confirmed the death toll and further stated that 32 individuals were in critical condition at the hospital, with hundreds more requiring medical attention.

U.S. and U.K. Conduct Eighth Round of Strikes on Houthi Targets in Yemen

According to a joint statement, the United States and the United Kingdom carried out additional strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen on Monday, marking the eighth round of attacks within a span of just over 10 days. Supported by Canada, the Netherlands, Bahrain, and Australia, the U.S. and U.K. struck eight sites as part of the operation.

Senior military and defense officials described the latest strikes as "successful," as they effectively destroyed missiles, weapons storage sites, and drone systems associated with the Houthi rebels. The officials, who provided details to reporters after the operation on Monday afternoon, expressed satisfaction as the strikes achieved the intended outcome.

Compared to the initial joint operation on January 11, which targeted over 30 Houthi sites, Monday's strikes focused on a smaller number of locations. The targets included an underground storage site linked to the Houthi rebels, as well as sites associated with Houthi missile and air surveillance.
