A bike rider stops to cover his nose trying to avoid inhaling poisonous gases caused by an acid leak in Jinhua, East China's Zhejiang province on Sept 17, 2010. An estimated eight tons of strong acid leaked from a tank on an abandoned factory yard and flew into sewer lines, causing billows of red gases. The accident got under control after two hours' efforts by local fire-fighting and environmental staffers. [Photo/CFP]
