Photographs of some areas affected by the release of silicon tetrachloride at Chinese plants.

Here's the caption:

(a) SiCl4 incident at Luoyang City, Henan Province. Dump of SiCl4 (left) and wilting corns (right). It occurred on March 9, 2008 and caused the land unavailable to grow crops
and not suitable for people to live nearby [12].
