Large explosion in centre of Czech capital Prague 29.04.13

This is an evolving news story. Up to 40 people have been injured in a large explosion in a building housing an office of the International Air Transport Association (Iata) in central Prague.

Police have sealed off an area around the blast site in Divadelni Street and neighbouring buildings have been evacuated. Officers investigating the explosion say the most likely cause was a gas leak.

It is understood about 15 people were inside the building, which is also an art gallery, at the time. Prague’s mayor told Czech radio three of them may be trapped in the rubble. The site is close to the Vltava river, and near the country’s National Theatre.
