City Metro Gas Leak

MOSCOW-- Emergency workers and police were called to a central Moscow subway station to investigate a mysterious leak of pungent gas, believed to be toxic, Interfax reported.


Police were quoted by Interfax as saying that the investigators had not yet identified the gas nor established if it was harmful. No casualties were reported in the incident Saturday at Borovitskaya metro station.


The metro station was evacuated after the first report of a gas leak, but was reopened after the gas dispersed.
