Nine children, including seven girls, were killed and two others injured when a wall of a mud house near which they were playing collapsed on them in Pakistan's Sukkur district, police said.

The incident happened Thursday at Ghulam Sarwar Shambani village. The children were aged between four and 12 years, they said.

"An inquiry has been ordered into the matter to prevent such incidents in future," Sukkur division Commissioner Rafiq Ahmed Buriro said.

A group of 11 children was playing near the mud house when the incident took place, he said.

The two injured were rushed to a hospital and have recovered, he added.
