A large explosion devastated a neighborhood in Madrid, killing at least two people and injuring eight others. Officials described it as a “strong explosion,” claiming the blast was the fault of a gas leak in a building belonging to the local religious center.
The building is near a nursing home, that was evacuated. The city hall emergency information service tweeted a video showing the extensive damage caused by the blast. At this time, terrorism is not being considered.
