a fourth victim was pulled out of the rubble

The identity of the victim has not been released. The search continued throughout the night and was still underway on Friday around 5:00 a.m., after the building exploded on Thursday morning. “We really want to be sure that there is no one left in the building,” explained a police spokeswoman.


Thursday evening, it was announced that the search was continuing to find two missing people. Emergency services did not know if they were actually present in the building at the time of the explosion. The body of little Houda (10) was found, while two people, including her mother, are still missing.

The toll, which is therefore still not definitive, is currently four dead, three seriously injured and two lightly injured. The search continues, but is made difficult by the instability of the building, the upper part of which was destroyed by the explosion.

The causes of the incident have not yet been determined. Several avenues are being examined, including an explosion due to gas. The gas distribution network manager Fluvius is present on site. King Philippe is expected Friday morning, at 10:00 a.m., at the scene of the explosion. There he will meet the victims and the emergency services.
