MOSCOW -At least five people were killed on Tuesday in a gas explosion that ripped through a five-floor building in the town of Yefremov south of Moscow, the RIA news agency said, citing emergency services.

"So far, seven people have been rescued; unfortunately, five people died," the emergency services said.

Gas explosions are relatively common in Russia because of ageing infrastructure and poor safety regulations surrounding gas use.
