Huge blast kills at least NINE and injures 30 after gas explosion rips through five-star hotel in Cuba: Rescuers trawl through the rubble for survivors
At least nine people have been killed and 30 injured after a huge gas explosion ripped apart a hotel in Cuba's capital Havana. Thirteen people remain missing following the blast at the five-star Hotel Saratoga as rescuers desperately search through rubble. Wounded locals could be seen getting treated outside the site in makeshift trauma units as ambulances raced to the scene. Meanwhile terrified children were evacuated by teachers from a school near the hotel in Old Havana on Friday afternoon. The gas was thought to have been moved in a truck before it ignited and blew through the walls of the 90-year-old building, destroying buses and cars parked outside. The site, which had 96 rooms, was closed at the time but was due for a grand reopening after the pandemic in just four days. Cuba's President Miguel Díaz-Canel and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero were among those paying tribute to the dead this afternoon as they visited the scene. Source
