Boiler Explosion at 5-Star Turkish Hotel Injures 9: Anatolia

A heating boiler explosion at a five-star Mediterranean hotel injured nine Turkish citizens today, Anatolia reported, without citing anyone.

The blast, which occurred during the installation of a laundry machine, knocked down at least two walls in the basement of the hotel in the resort town of Kemer in the Antalya province, the state-run news agency said.

The injured included five hotel staff and four workers who were installing the machine, Anatolia said. Three of the injured were in serious condition, it said.
