Meanwhile, the government would also do its best to determine the cause of the blast, who was to blame, and to reexamine public safety policies, he affirmed.

Two victims have died after the tragic incident on June 27. The number of patients in critical condition has risen to 237, according to the latest information provided by authorities on Monday.
