>> The ruins of a fireworks factory in Indonesia ripped apart by a series of explosions that left some 47 people dead. Police and emergency crews sifting through the remains on the western outskirts of the capital. The area shrouded in the smell of burning plastic and chemicals. Just hours before, thick plumes of smoke billowing from the factory warehouse.
Witnesses said there were two explosions within three hours, both could be heard miles away. Jakarta Police said many of the victims were burnt so badly that you couldn't see their faces, dozens more were injured. Policy reportedly broke holes in the factory wall to help people escape. Industrial safety standards in Indonesia are often poor and rules weakly enforced.
Local media said this factory had only been operating for two months. The government is also investigating reports of underage workers at the facility.
