Explosion in Northern Paris, 5 injured


A massive explosion rocked a building in the northern part of Paris on Saturday, injuring at least five people. Saturday’s explosion in the 18th arrondissement was less powerful.

But still, the windows of the building were broken. Police and emergency services said five injured people were taken to hospital and other residents of the building were evacuated. It is not yet known how this accident happened. Police said they have launched an investigation into the source of the blast.

A waiter at a nearby Fulano restaurant told AFP that “there was a big bang and a cloud of dust filled the entire street”. The incident evoked memories of an explosion in the Left Bank area of Paris in June that killed three people and injured 37.

Why Maharana Sanga is known for his valour and sacrifice The area where the blast took place is south of the Latin Quarter in the Left Bank area of Paris which is popular with tourists and known for its student population. The cause of the accident was said to be a gas leak. In January 2019, an explosion caused by a gas leak destroyed a building near the centre of Paris, killing four people, two of whom were firefighters, and injuring 66.
