Russian gas blast toll rising
17/03/2004 21:05 - (SA)

Moscow - The death toll from Tuesday's gas explosion at a block of flats in northern Russia was expected to reach 70, rescue workers said on Wednesday.

By Wednesday afternoon search teams had recovered 50 bodies, including eight children, and search efforts were continuing at the site of the disaster at the nine-storey apartment building in the city of Archangel'sk. Only deceased victims were found overnight.

A further 20 victims are believed to be still buried under the rubble.

A total of 24 residents of the building survived the blast, many of them suffering serious injuries.

Reports said authorities believe two men tampered with the block's gas system and caused the explosion.

Officials said they had discovered a seal missing from a gas pipe while searching the rubble.

Police said they were searching for two men, believed to be connected to several gas explosions in other buildings in the area. - Sapa-dpa
