Argentina gas explosion toll hits 14


ROSARIO, Argentina: Argentine rescue workers recovered the body of a man from the ruins of an explosion-shattered apartment building late Friday, raising the confirmed death toll in the disaster to 14. Seven other people remain missing after the devastating blast caused by a gas leak Tuesday in the three-tower complex in Rosario, the country’s third-largest city. Leonardo Caruana, the city’s public health chief, identified the victim as Federico Balseiro, 40. The search for survivors continued despite dimming odds for the missing.
