Two Dead In Paris Gas Blast Amid Lockdown For Yellow-Vest Protests

According to Reuters, two firefighters died and nearly people 50 were injured in a massive gas explosion that destroyed the ground floor of a building in a central Paris shopping district on Saturday.

The accident occurred with Paris under security lockdown for a ninth consecutive Saturday of “yellow vest” protests, with large parts of the French capital blocked off by riot police.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said on his Twitter feed that two firefighters had died, and that 10 people, including one firefighter, had serious injuries.
