#AceWorldNews says an apparent gas explosion Thursday at a restaurant near a filling station in the Qatari capital killed 12 people and wounded several more, AP reported.
Initial reports suggested a burst natural gas tank atop a Turkish restaurant was to blame for the blast. It happened shortly after 10am near the popular Landmark Mall shopping centre in Doha.
The blast caused the partial collapse of the Istanbul Restaurant. Officials said the explosion was an accident.
