BEIJING, China - An explosion at a fireworks factory in southern China killed 12 people and injured 33 others, the local government said Tuesday.

Two people were also missing following Monday's blast, which shook Nanyang Export Fireworks Factory, the city of Liling in Hunan province said. It revised the injured toll down from 38 because it said five people who had been transferred between hospitals were counted twice.
