10 injured in gas blast in southeastern Turkey

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.
