28 people have been injured, with seven of them transported to the hospital, following an explosion that occurred at a traditional popular festival in the southwestern city of Chiai, according to the Central News Agency of Taiwan on Sunday.

According to the agency, the explosion took place last night during the festival, which was attended by over 20,000 people.

A total of 28 individuals were injured in the incident, with seven of them being rushed to the hospital after sustaining injuries from glass shards or burns.
