At least three people are believed to have died after an explosion on Wednesday devastated a building belonging to a Catholic parish in the Spanish capital, Madrid.
The explosion took place near the Puerta de Toledo in central Madrid after 3 p.m. local time on Jan. 20.
The archdiocese of Madrid said that the explosion may have been caused by a gas leak in the building owned by the Parish of the Virgen de la Paloma and San Pedro el Real.
It said that priests lived on two floors of the building, which also contained space used by the parish and Caritas.
