Many injured in heavy explosion in Paris

A bakery in the center of Paris was hit by a powerful explosion early Saturday morning, according to French police.

Police report that many are injured in the explosion, which according to CNN was due to a gas leak.

The bakery is located in Rue de Trevise in the ninth arrondissement about 1 kilometer from the opera, and the explosion could be heard over much of the center.

Photos circulating on social media show that the entire facade of the building is resting together, and that dross and cars are scattered around the street.

The explosion also aroused concern because it occurred while the authorities are preparing for new demonstrations of the so-called yellow vestiges.
