Aquarium bursts in shopping centre in Shanghai
Sixteen people have been hurt after an aquarium burst at a shopping mall in Shanghai.
The thirty-three tonne tank which housed sharks, turtles and fish shattered without warning at the city's Orient shopping centre on 18 December.
The explosion destroyed a nearby cosmetics counter where one worker had to be pulled to safety.
The tank was installed just two years ago but investigators say a combination of low temperatures and weak materials caused the catastrophic collapse.
Three lemon sharks and dozens of turtles and small fish were killed in the incident.
