3 killed, dozens injured in explosion at Paris bakery
A powerful explosion apparently caused by a gas leak has blown apart a Paris bakery and devastated the street it was on, killing three people and injuring dozens.
Witnesses described the explosion Saturday morning as deafening. It blew out windows and overturned nearby cars. Firefighters pulled injured victims out from windows and evacuated residents and tourists as a fire raged and smoke billowed over Rue de Trevise in north-central Paris.
The French Interior Ministry said two firefighters and a female Spanish tourist were killed, and about 10 of the 47 wounded were in critical condition.
