Gas leak suspected as blast rips through Pakistani hotel

AFP reports:

A blast ripped through the top floor of a hotel building in the Pakistani capital Islamabad, injuring at least six people, police officials said. City police chief Bani Amin said the cause of the blast "appears to be a gas cylinder" as gas was still leaking at the Citi Hotel in the Blue Area, a normally bustling district of shops and restaurants.
