At least 68 people have been killed and more than one-hundred injured in an explosion at a factory in eastern China.
The country's Xinhua News Agency reports the blast tore through a metal products factory in Kunshan, a city in Jiangsu Province.
The factory, run by a company called Zhongrong, makes car and bicycle parts and specializes in alloy and electroplating.
There were more than 200 workers at the site when the blast occurred.
Preliminary investigations show the explosion was likely caused by an accumulation of dust that ignited as workers were polishing metal wheel rims in a workshop.
