A fireworks-laden truck exploded as it crossed a bridge in central China on Friday, killing 26 people as the structure collapsed and vehicles plummeted to the ground, state-run media reported. An 80-metre long part of the bridge collapsed and six vehicles had been retrieved from the debris, China's official news agency Xinhua said. The bridge near the city of Sanmenxia is on the G30 expressway, the longest road in China, which stretches for nearly 4,400 kilometres (2,700 miles) from China's western border with Kazakhstan to the eastern Yellow Sea.
