At least 25 people have died in a fire at a furniture factory north of the Egyptian capital Cairo.

A further 22 people suffered injuries from burns and smoke inhalation from the blaze in the city of Obour.

The fire is thought to have started after a gas canister exploded while it was being transported in a lift.

The factory had not obtained a government safety certificate, and more than 20 fire trucks eventually brought the blaze under control.
