An oil pipeline in the coastal city of Qingdao exploded after leaking for several hours last Friday, killing 55 people and injuring at least 160. Oil spilled onto about one square kilometer of land and flowed through drainage pipes to the ocean. While some media asked why residents were not told to evacuate, localQingdao news outlets kept silent on the accident until Sunday. In this cartoon, a body is covered by the Peninsula Metropolitan Daily (青岛都市报), a Qingdao paper. On Sunday, the Central Propaganda Department issued a directive to online and print media circumscribing coverage of the accident.
