Three dead in Paris explosion

January 12, 2019

 

Paris woke up to more heartbreak today after an horrific ‘#gas #explosion’ left three dead and injured 47 others, ten of whom are in grave condition.

 

The #explosion occurred at 9am (8am GMT) at a #bakery in #Paris while emergency services were attending a gas leak. Among the dead were two #firefighters and a #Spanish woman. The Interior Minister Christophe Castaner described the blast “as a #dramatic #explosion”.

 

The explosion occurred as #yellowvest #demonstrators kept up pressure on the #French government, but we are informed that they were not involved in the explosion. However, we understand the planned #protests on the streets of Paris will still go ahead as planned.

 

#Reuters have filed reports that #helicopters were brought in to evacuate some of the injured, using the roof of the nearby place de #l'Opéra
