A factory explosion in a port city south of Shanghai today killed at least two people and injured at least 30 others as it knocked down buildings and left streets littered with damaged cars and debris, news reports said.

The explosion struck a factory in a riverfront neighborhood in Ningbo, one of China’s busiest ports, the official Xinhua News Agency and other outlets reported.

A police statement said the cause of the 8.55am blast was under investigation.

Television images showed cars twisted and mangled by the force of the explosion, a plume of grey smoke rising in the sky, and debris scattered for dozens of meters around the site of the incident.
