At least 38 people have been killed in a collision between a bus and a van carrying flammable liquids in southern China, state media reports.

The van drove into the back of the passenger coach in the early hours of Saturday, sparking an explosion, the official Xinhua news agency said.

It is the latest in a string of deadly road accidents in China that have triggered anger over unsafe transport.
