Two children die in Vietnam explosion

A baby boy and a five-year-old girl were killed in an explosion east of Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi, early Wednesday that destroyed several houses and wounded at least eight other people.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the blast in Bac Ninh Province’s Yen Phong district, which occurred at 4:30 am demolishing buildings and sending debris flying through the air.

The explosion completely razed four homes to charred rubble and shattered the windows of surrounding buildings.

A one-year-old boy and a girl were killed, according to a report from the provincial health department seen by AFP.
