Explosion kills 4 in Shanxi mining company building

FOUR people have been confirmed dead after a building was destroyed by an explosion at a mining company office building in China's Shanxi Province, said the local production safety watchdog on Saturday.

The explosion occurred at 4:30pm yesterday in the office building of the Dongfang Zhenxing Coal Mining Co. Ltd in the northern China province. A deputy director of the company was among the dead.

An initial police investigation has ruled out arson. Police said the blast was caused by explosives stored in the mining company.

The city government of Yangquan, which administrates the mining area, has ordered a safety overhaul on detonation materials after the accident.
