APTOPIX Czech Republic Explosion

An explosion damaged an office building in the center of the Czech capital, Prague, Monday, injuring up to 40 people. Authorities believe some people are buried in the rubble. It is not certain what caused the blast in Divadelni Street. The street was covered with rubble and was sealed off by police who also evacuated people from nearby buildings and closed a wide area around the explosion site.  “There was glass everywhere and people shouting and crying,” Vaclav Rokyta, a Czech student, told the AP near the scene. “I was in the bathroom, no windows, the door was closed, honestly, if I had been in my bed I would have been covered in glass,” said Z.B. Haislip, a student from the U.S. state of North Carolina who was in a nearby building. AP.
