PARIS (AP) – The parquet of Paris says that aid workers found a body under the rubble of a bakery in Paris, which was blown up by a powerful blast, bringing the total death toll to four.

The explosion on Saturday morning in Rue de Trevise in the 9th arrondissement of north-central Paris also injured dozens of people. Authorities say that 10 of them are still in critical condition.

Spokesman Eric Moulin of the fire brigade in Paris said that about 30 firefighters were on the site Sunday to search for other potential victims, amidst a pile of debris and destroyed cars.

The Paris authorities said that 12 adjacent buildings damaged by the explosion were apparently evacuated as a result of a gas leak. Temporary accommodations were provided for around 40 residents while dozens of others were accommodated by family and friends.
