Agency says gas leak most likely cause despite claims of ‘terrorist act’ in Magnitogorsk
Russian investigators have denied reports that traces of explosives were found in the rubble of a residential building that was partially destroyed by a powerful blast on New Year’s Eve, but insisted they are considering “all possible causes”.
At least 28 people were killed when an explosion tore through a 10-storey building in Magnitogorsk, an industrial city in Russia’s Ural region, at about 6am on Monday. Fifteen people are still missing as rescuers continue to scour the ruins of the building in sub-zero temperatures.
