Mumbai: Five people were killed in a wall collapse triggered by an explosion in the Saki Naka area of the city's Andheri east early Friday, officials said. The cause of the blast remains unknown.

The explosion took place around 2 a.m. in an aluminium moulding factory's warehouse that led to the collapse of a compound wall, an official of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Disaster Control unit said.
