More than 3,000 South Koreans near the southeastern city of Gumi have received medical treatment as the damage from a major toxic chemical leak continues to grow.

An explosion at the factory of chemical maker Hube Global on September 27th, which killed five people, led to the leak of hydrofluoric acid which has affected crops, livestock and villagers near the plant.

Nearly 3,200 people have so far been treated for chest pain, rashes, sore eyes or sore throats after apparently inhaling toxic fumes.
