Two killed in China road collapse

Two people have been killed after a road collapsed in China's northeastern city of Harbin.

The hole, measuring 10 metres square, opened up on a street in the city centre.

Rescuers went into the hole via a drainpipe and managed to pull two others out, including a baby girl who suffered minor injuries.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the collapse.
