Five children have been killed in a blast at an abandoned firecracker factory in Yuncheng city in north China's Shanxi province.

The six, all about 10 years old, were playing inside the factory near Wangjia village of Nanzhang township, Wanrong county Sunday, when the explosion occurred.

A small amount of expired explosives stored in the factory went off at about 1 pm, killing five instantly and seriously injuring another, sources said.
