Subject: 3 die in explosion at Tokyo spa Tue 19 Jun - 10:58
In downtown Tokyo, an explosion has occurred at a building of a spa facility, killing 3 women and injuring at least 3 others.
The blast on Tuesday afternoon blew away the building's roof and walls, leaving only its iron frame, and shattered windows of nearby buildings.
The spa has a women-only bathhouse that opened in January last year.
The building where the blast occurred is located across the street from the bathhouse, and houses a boiler in the basement. Police officers and firefighters are searching the basement, based on information that people may be trapped there.
