“Dhaka Devastated: Multiple Explosions Claim Dozens of Lives and Leave More Than 100 Injured”

Explosion in Bangladesh capital leaves dozens dead and injured

A powerful blast rocked a crowded market in the capital city of Bangladesh on Monday, killing at least 15 people and injuring dozens more. The explosion is believed to have occurred in a building that housed several shops and businesses, causing extensive damage to nearby structures.

According to witnesses, the force of the blast was so strong that it shattered windows and brought down parts of the building. Emergency services arrived on the scene shortly after the incident, and the injured were rushed to different hospitals for treatment.

The cause of the explosion is not yet known, but authorities suspect it may have been caused by a gas leak. Bangladesh has experienced similar incidents in the past, with poorly enforced safety regulations often blamed for accidents.

The explosion comes just days after another blast in the city that left 17 people dead and over 100 injured. That incident occurred at a residential building, with authorities linking it to a faulty gas cylinder.

The government has vowed to launch an investigation into the latest explosion, with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina expressing her condolences to the victims and their families. The incident has once again raised concerns about public safety in the city, with many calling for stricter regulations and enforcement.
