At least 24 miners have been killed and 54 injured by an underground fire at a mine in China's north-eastern Liaoning province.

The mine is operated by the state-owned Liaoning Fuxin Coal Corporation.

The cause of the fire is not immediately clear, but the company said the rescue operation had now ended.

China has the world's deadliest mines, with hundreds of mine workers killed in accidents every year.
