One person has died in a town east of Moscow after a powerful explosion caused part of the structure of a five-story ‘Khrushchevka’ building to collapse. A gas leak is being blamed for the incident.
The blast took place on Saturday afternoon in Orekhovo-Zuyevo, a town of 118,000 people around 80km from the Russian capital. Images making the rounds on social media show the entire section – from just under the roof all the way down to the first floor – reduced to rubble.
