Eight injured as explosion rocks hotel in Argentina


Atleast eight people have been injured in a blast in a hotel in Argentinian capital Buenos Aires.

The blast deformed a steel wall of the hotel, nearly detaching it from the hotel.

The hotel has evacuated all the people to an adjacent hotel.

The police have cordoned off all the roads near the hotel and firefighters have put out the fire.

Seven of the eight injured were the hotel’s staff members, and three of them were in critical case. They were all rushed to hospital, according to the medical workers who arrived at the hotel for rescue.

Firefighters speculated that gas leakage from the laundry room of the hotel may have caused the accident.
