Woman jailed over suicidal gas blast

A WOMAN has been jailed for 11 years after cutting a gas pipe in her kitchen, causing a blast that injured 14 people.

Wang Qi cut the gas pipe in the early hours of June 4 last year in Beijing to try to commit suicide after an unhappy love affair, Wuhan Evening News reported today.
