5 killed by gas explosion in Italy


ROME (Reuters), A suspected explosion from a gas leak killed five people in the northwestern town of Arnasco in Rome, Italy.

Five bodies were recovered from the rubble of the residential building and a woman was taken to hospital in a serious condition, a fire service spokesman said.

All of the building’s residents were accounted for but firefighters continued to dig through the debris in case any of them had visitors.
