Paris gas blast death toll at four

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - WORLD -

– The death toll from a gas ex­plo­sion in Paris has risen to four after res­cue work­ers found a woman’s body in the rub­ble, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said yes­ter­day.

Two fire­fight­ers and a Span­ish tourist were also killed in the mas­sive blast that gut­ted part of a build­ing, in­jured dozens of peo­ple and badly dam­aged nearby apart­ments.

Res­cue work­ers with snif­fer dogs had ear­lier been search­ing for a miss­ing woman who lived above the point of Satur­day’s ex­plo­sion and who was be­lieved to be in the rub­ble. A source close to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion said it was still to be con­firmed if the body was that of the miss­ing woman. –
