Death toll rises to 4 after Paris blast
Rescuers have found a body under the rubble of a bakery in Paris that was blown apart by a powerful explosion, bringing the overall death toll to four. The blast on Saturday morning in the Rue de Trevise in the ninth arrondissement of northcentral Paris also injured dozens of people. Authorities say 10 of them are still in critical condition. Paris fire department spokesman Eric Moulin told reporters about 30 firefighters were at the site to search for other potential victims, amid a mountain of debris and wrecked cars. Paris authorities said 12 neighbouring buildings that were damaged by the blast apparently due to a gas leak have been evacuated. Temporary accommodation was provided for about 40 residents while dozens of others have been housed by family and friends.
