Gas Explosion in Moscow Kills One

A man died after a domestic gas explosion blew him through the window of his seventh-floor apartment on Sunday night.

The explosion in the 12-story apartment block on 7 Nagornaya Ulitsa shattered the apartment's windows and damaged two internal walls, Interfax reported.

The blast caused no fire, but the building's tenants all had to be evacuated.

No serious structural damage to the building was reported, the Emergency Situations Ministry said.

A similar incident took place on April 19 in the north-east of Moscow when a domestic gas explosion on Shirokaya Ulitsa damaged two apartments on the sixth and seventh floors of a 6-story residential building.

Three people were killed in the fire and four were injured.
