Explosion Kills two in Mauritius

GRAND BAIE, Mauritius (Reuters) - An explosion in the tourist resort of Grand Baie on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius has killed two people and injured 13 others, police say.

"An explosion occurred at around 1:45 local time (10.45 a.m. British time on Saturday) in a building housing restaurants, bars and shops in Grand Baie," police spokesman Max Louison said.

"At this moment we are not in a position to say what the cause of the explosion is. But we are taking it very seriously."

The blast on Sunday, which killed a local man and a woman both in their mid-twenties, caused the top floor of the two-storey building partly to collapse and blew out windows on the ground floor.

Scores of soldiers were helping civilians and police officers remove debris from the site, while helicopters buzzed overhead, a Reuters witness said. Forensic experts were trying to find the cause of the blast.

"I hope that the police will complete their inquiries on this and that the cause of the explosion will be established as soon as possible," Prime Minister Paul Berenger told reporters.

"The explosion of gas cylinders as a cause cannot be discarded."

Police said the building had been completely evacuated. Four of the injured, who were all believed to be locals, had been taken to a nearby hospital.

Tourism is one of the main economic pillars on the tiny island of 1.2 million people, strategically situated between the African continent and Asia. Over 700,000 tourists visited its white sand beaches last year.

There was no immediate indication that the blast might have been deliberately caused, but the United States issued a travel advisory in March warning of a possible terrorist threat on the island and in the wider east African region, although Mauritius has no history of such attacks.

Mauritius in fact has actively promoted itself as a safe haven destination since the September 11, 2001 attacks on U.S. cities.

The island -- which lies 4,000 km (2,500 miles) east of South Africa -- is also a major regional banking centre and the world's seventh largest sugar exporter. It plans to turn itself into a "cyber island" information technology hub linking Asian software expertise with Africa.
