Explosion rocks video game arcade in Casablanca

Explosion rocks video game arcade in Casablanca

Witnesses say an explosion has rocked a suburb of Casablanca, Morocco's economic capital. Authorities say at least one person is dead and six wounded.
Resident Hassan Sajeed says the explosion occurred at about 8:45 a.m. in front of or inside a video game arcade on his street, the Boulevard el Joulane.
Sajeed said he believed the explosion was a bomb, and that windows were blown out as far as 40 meters (yards) away.
Morocco's Interior Ministry says the blast early Wednesday appears to be a gas explosion, not a terrorist act. A high ranking official at the ministry says one person is dead and six wounded. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of government regulations.
Deadly terrorist bombings rocked Casablanca in 2003.
