A bomb blast near the Spanish capital, Madrid, has killed at least two people and injured dozens more. Immediately after the blast, rescue agencies launched rescue operations and recovered the bodies of two people buried under the rubble of the building. More people are feared buried in the rubble. The death toll could rise. Eyewitnesses told the media that the blast was as loud as the sound of a bomb, but the mayor of Madrid said the blast was caused by a gas leak.
Pictures that went viral on social media show that the upper floors of the multi-storey building were completely destroyed and there were dust and clouds at the scene.
