Indonesia Blast leaves 46 Dead at Fireworks Factory.

Around 46 people have died, 46 are injured, and 10 are missing after explosions at a fireworks factory in Indonesia.

The blaze took hold at around 09:00 local time (02:00 GMT), at an industrial complex in Tangerang, west of the capital Jakarta.

The fire has been brought under control.

Forensic officers are at the scene and the wounded have been taken to three hospitals.

Police said many of the dead were found clustered at the back of the factory, suggesting they tried in vain to flee the flames.

Images of the explosion show much of the factory’s roof blown out and burned-out vehicles standing charred in the factory. Another showed a body in a bag being taken away.
