Explosion and fire hit major Russian gas pipeline

An explosion and fire hit a major gas pipeline in northwest Russia early on Thursday but it was unclear if exports were affected, officials and witnesses said.


“It is an explosion on a trunk gas pipeline under high pressure,” said Valentin Sedorin, a spokesman for the Leningrad region around Russia’s second city of St Petersburg. (Reuters)
