The Paris prosecutor’s office said on Sunday rescuers have found a body under the rubble of a bakery in Paris that was blown apart by a powerful explosion, bringing the overall death toll to four.

The blast in the Rue de Trevise in the 9th arrondissement of north-central Paris on Saturday morning also injured dozens of people.

Authorities said 10 people remained in a critical condition.

A spokesperson for the Paris fire department said about 30 firefighters were at the site on Sunday, to search for other potential victims, amid a mountain of debris and wrecked cars.
