The death toll is rising in Taiwan in a series of explosions triggered by underground gas leaks in the southern city of Kaohsiung, according to state-run news agency CNA.

At least 24 people were killed and another 271 injured when the powerful blasts ripped through the city's sewage system early Friday. Firefighters from neighboring cities rushed to Kaohsiung to help battle the flames, CNA reported.
Among the dead were four firefighters. Another 22 emergency workers were also injured. A senior fire official said an unknown number of people were missing.
Authorities investigated reports of an apparent gas leak in the hours before a series of explosions rocked the city's Cianjhen district.
