According to facts reported by 7sur 7, among the eight people rescued during the disaster, three were injured and were hospitalized.
This tragedy took place on Sunday 29 September as the country is a few days away from celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic. A celebration that the communist regime “prepares with great reinforcements of propaganda“, according to the information website. To avoid negative waves around the advent, the authorities urged local media to “avoid insisting on bad news as the October 1st celebration approaches and focus on positive energy”.
