BAKU (Reuters) – Two people were killed and two were wounded on Monday in a blast in a cafe in the capital of Azerbaijan, an official from the health ministry said.

The explosion hit a small cafe in a suburb of Baku next to a shopping centre. There was no official reason for the blast but a source at the emergency ministry told Reuters it was caused by gas leakage.
