PARIS, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- An explosion at an apartment building in Paris Sunday killed at least six people, including a mother and her two teenage children.
An 80-year-old woman also died as rescue workers removed her from the rubble. Four of the 11 people emergency workers pulled from the scene are seriously injured.
The blast ripped off the side of the building in what officials are calling a gas leak.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve visited the site and offered his thoughts and prayers to those killed in the explosion and their families.
