MOSCOW | Russia: No explosives found at collapsed apartment building
MOSCOW — Russia’s top investigative body says no traces of explosives have been found in the rubble of an apartment building that collapsed this week, killing 39 people.
A section of the 10-story building in Magnitogorsk, about 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) southeast of Moscow, fell into a vast heap of jagged concrete on Monday after an explosion. Officials say a gas leak likely triggered the blast, although unconfirmed reports in
Russian media have suggested it could have been an extremist act.
