At least 14 killed in India gas pipeline blast

At least 14 people have died after a gas pipeline exploded in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, destroying homes and forcing the evacuation of neighbouring villages.

Residents of the village of Nagaram said they had complained that the Gas Authority of India Limited (Gail) pipelines had become rusty and were not being properly maintained.

Gail is India's largest state-owned natural gas processing and distribution company.
