Multiple injuries after suspected gas explosion in Paris bakery

Police advised the public to stay away from the area, on Rue de Trevise in the 9th arrondissement of the French capital, and to make space for emergency vehicles.

A fire broke out after the blast at around 9 a.m. local time, which police suspect may have been caused by a gas leak at a bakery.

A Paris police spokeswoman said several injuries have been reported to police but no deaths.

The spokesperson, who wasn't authorised to be publicly named, provided no further details.

"There was broken glass everywhere, storefronts were blown out and windows were shattered up to the third and fourth floors", said 38-year-old David Bangura.
