Ammunition, gas canisters found in German blast building: police

Published: Updated:

Police said they found gas canisters and old war ammunition in one of the flats in the apartment building where an explosion took place earlier on Friday, injuring dozens and killing one.

The flat was rented by a 78-year-old man, who was likely also the person killed in the explosion, which police believe was caused by a gas explosion.

A bomb disposal team was supporting police in their inquiries, they added on Twitter.

A photo tweeted by police showed a five-story communist-era residential block with smoke rising from blackened windows on the second floor.
