Chinese state media say at least 26 people have died after a truck carrying fireworks exploded on a highway in central China.
China National Radio says the explosion Friday in Henan province completely destroyed a highway bridge high above the ground and that many trucks fell off the bridge after the explosion. The report says parts of the bridge were blackened in the blast.
