KIEV, Oct 13 (Reuters) A gas explosion tore through an apartment building in central Ukraine today, killing at least six people, the Emergencies Ministry said.
A ministry spokesman said the 11 am local time blast in a big complex of apartment buildings in the city of Dnipropetrovsk sent rubble cascading down on residents.
''One section of the building has been destroyed,'' the spokesman said. ''For the moment, six bodies have been recovered.
There are many more injured and casualty figures are sure to rise.'' REUTERS PD RK1620
