Seven Peruvian police officers have been injured in an explosion as they tried to confiscate illegal fireworks from vendors at a street market in the city of Chiclayo.

Angry vendors were seen pushing officers away from their stands before a box of fireworks exploded on Monday.

The officers were taken to a local hospital with injuries to the arms, legs and face.
