France: Apparent gas explosion injures several in Dijon

Authorities say several people are injured after an apparent accidental gas explosion near the train station in the eastern French city of Dijon.

Mayor Francois Rebsamen said on BFM and i-Tele television that one person remained trapped and several were evacuated by emergency workers after Friday's blast. He said it was "not an attack."

Rebsamen said witnesses described a strong odor of gas and described it as a domestic accident.
