An explosion has rocked central Paris, with dozens of people injured, historic buildings damaged and cars alight.

At least 20 people were injured when a major gas explosion ripped through a bakery on the Rue de Trévise, a street in the 9th district of Paris this morning, BFMTV reported.

In the immediate aftermath, smashed cars and debris from other shop fronts littered the street in front of the burning bakery as people stood around, looking stunned by the force of the explosion.
