Reims building collapse after blast 'kills three'
At least three people have died after an explosion partly destroyed a block of flats in the northern French city of Reims, officials say.
Mayor Adeline Hazan told BFM TV that the explosion at the four-storey building was probably caused by a gas leak.
Emergency services say at least 10 people have been injured, including a number of children.
One resident said she initially thought the explosion was a car on fire.
