JINAN, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- A total of 25 people including bosses of five chemical companies in east China's Shandong Province have been detained for illegal discharge of dangerous chemicals which led to the death of four people, police said on Wednesday.

On Oct. 21 last year, four bodies were found in Shanggao Village, Zhangqiu City. Police smelled suspicious odor at the scene and discovered lye being illegally discharged into an abandoned mine nearby, said Hou Lei, an investigating officer.

The waste originated with Shandong Jincheng Zhongyou, a chemical company in Zibo City. The four victims had been hired by the company to discharge the toxic waste illegally at a low cost, Hou said, and died as a result of inhaling toxic fumes.
