More than 90 people have died in two separate fires in China.

A fire swept through a five-storey shopping centre in the northeastern city of Jilin, killing at least 53 people.

The fire at the Zhongbai Commercial Plaza broke out on the second floor of the building. More than 70 people were hurt.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated. There are reports that emergency exits were locked.

In the second fire, in Zhejiang, 40 women died, most of them elderly, and three were injured at a makeshift temple in Wufeng village.

The temple was reported to be largely made of straw and bamboo.
