Facade and roof blown away after a major explosion, squatter injured: “Hallucinant, the debris flew tens of meters”

One person was injured in a serious explosion in a squatted house in Kortrijk. Around 7:30 p.m., residents of Beukenlaan heard a huge bang. The victim was found on the street. The impact was so severe that the facade of the house collapsed. Remarkable: a theft of pipes caused gas to accumulate.
