Four persons have been killed and 29 other injured, including 17 children, after a gunpowder handling factory exploded in Colombia’s capital Bogota on Friday, authorities said.

“There are four people without vital signs,” a source in the fire service confirmed.

The explosion happened at midday in a factory that produces wicks for a local Andean game called tejo or turmeque, in which metal discs are thrown at targets that contain gunpowder and explode on impact.

“The causes of the accident are being investigated,” the fire service source said.
