At least 1 dead in Turkish explosion
(07-11 15:36)

Officials say a gas explosion in southwestern Turkey has killed one person and injured 25 others.
The state-run Anadolu Agency said the explosion occurred in a bakery on the ground floor of a five-story building in the city of Denizli.
Gov. Abdulkadir Demir told reporters that authorities were trying to determine whether natural gas or gas canisters in the building may have been involved.
Video footage from the private Dogan news agency showed at least two people being helped into ambulances.
Denizli is a city of more than half a million residents, 240 kilometers southeast of the port of Izmir. --AP
