PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — A huge explosion rocked Kosovo's main power plant Friday, causing casualties and damaging nearby houses.

Police could not immediately confirm whether there were any deaths in the blast Friday at Kosovo A power plant outside the capital Pristina. They say at least a dozen people have been injured.


Local media reported the blast was a gas explosion and that there were four deaths. They said the workers have been evacuated from the complex.

A black plume of smoke could be seen rising from the coal-fired power plant, as ambulances ferried the injured to hospitals. Police sealed off the area, fearing more explosions could follow.

Kosovo's main political parties suspended campaigning for the general elections, which will take place on Sunday.
