A suspected gas leak caused a powerful explosion that totally destroyed a supermarket in the southern Russian city of Vladikavkaz in the early hours of Friday.

A local television station reported, citing the region’s deputy head of government.

A security guard apparently managed to free himself after being covered in rubble.

It was initially unclear whether other people were in the building at the time of the blast.
