10 Injured In Gas Blast In Southeastern Turkey
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - A governor in Turkey says a liquified petroleum gas tank exploded at a petrol station, injuring 10 people at an adjacent supermarket in southeastern Turkey.
Gov. Mustafa Toprak says Tuesday's blast occurred in Diyarbakir, the largest city in the country's Kurdish-dominated southeast, where Kurdish rebels have been waging war for autonomy for decades.
Toprak has ruled out terrorism and says the explosion was caused by a faulty gas valve.
He says one of the 10 injured was in critical condition.
