Exploding laptop hits LG shares
Shares in LG Electronics and LG Chem have fallen after a laptop computer
exploded, which LG Electronics said contained an LG Chem battery.
Several Korean newspapers reported the computer owned by a local journalist
had exploded while in sleeping mode.

News channel YTN showed pictures of flames and smoke rising from it.

LG Chem has asked a third party to investigate the incident, although there
was no indication that the battery had been to blame.

LG Electronics shares closed down 5.7% in Seoul while LG Chem fell 4.7%.

In 2006, Sony began recalling 9.6 million lithium-ion batteries because of
fears that they could burst into flames. The recall eventually cost it
51.2bn yen ($467m; 238m).

LG Chem is the world's fifth-largest manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries,
which are used in mobile phones and laptop computers.
