Blast at food shop in China kills two and injures 55

Two people died and 55 were injured by a massive explosion at a food shop in the eastern China resort city of Hangzhou.

Security camera footage showed the blast that struck during the breakfast rush at 8.40am local time on Friday flinging dust and debris across a major road used by cars, buses, bicycles and scooters.

Footage from state broadcaster CCTV showed charred shop fronts facing the street in the residential area. Most such small establishments use bottled gas to fuel their cookers.
