More than 70 people were injured, four seriously, in a gas cylinder explosion in the southern Spanish city of Malaga, officials said on Saturday.

The blast happened in a cafe in the town of Velez-Malaga during a local festival, BBC reported.

Pictures from the scene show severe damage to the La Bohemia cafe and debris strewn across a street.

Local newspaper La Opinion de Malaga said that the chef had raised the alarm moments before the blast.

Police cars helped ferry the injured to hospital because the local ambulance service was overwhelmed with casualties, the report said.
