Explosion in Polish parish house kills 2, injures 7


WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Officials in southern Poland say two people have been found dead after an explosion demolished half of an old Evangelical parish house in the city of Katowice. The regional governor said Friday’s explosion injured seven others. He said two women initially were reported missing but firefighters found their bodies in the rubble in the afternoon. Firefighters say gas that was used for heating and cooking in the three-story brick house most likely caused the explosion. A hospital said two girls aged 5 and 3 were admitted with non life-threatening injuries.
