The incident happened at the mosque in Guyuan, a city in the Ningxia region, the Xinhua News Agency said, while people were handing out traditional cakes during an event to commemorate a religious figure.

Another 10 people were taken to hospital, four of them in a critical condition.

Ningxia is the home of China's Muslim Hui ethnic minority.
