At least six people were killed and 34 injured when a powerful explosion hit an Internet cafe in southwest China on Saturday evening, reducing it to ruins, state media reported.

The blast ripped through the cafe in Kaili city in Guizhou province at about 10:30 pm (1430 GMT), the state-run Xinhua news agency said, citing local police and the provincial public security department.

Rescue workers were pulling victims from the devastated building and rushing the injured to hospital, Xinhua said.

Police were still investigating the cause of the explosion, which also smashed windows in neighbouring buildings.
