LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Two people were killed and four others seriously injured on Thursday in an explosion at an airport in the California desert, news reports said.

The Bakersfield Californian newspaper reported that two people had been killed and four others were in critical condition following the blast at Mojave Airport.

There was no immediate word on whether the explosion had affected those facilities.
