At least seven people died and dozens more remained missing on Monday after an early-morning explosion, possibly ignited by a gas leak, caused part of a multi-story residential apartment building to collapse in the central Russian city of Magnitogorsk.

Search operations for the missing are underway.

A gas explosion on Monday rocked a 10-story residential building in the city of Magnitogorsk, 1,400 km east of Moscow.

President Vladimir Putin visited the site of the accident in the mining city, according to the Kremlin.
