The toll is rising: At least nine people have been killed following an explosion at a service station in northwest Ireland, local police announced Saturday, October 8. Police said eight more people have been admitted to hospital “Search continues for other victims”. However, the police did not elaborate on the origin of the blast, which took place on Friday afternoon in Kreislov village.
