A gas explosion at a wedding reception in southern Russia has injured at least 46 people.

Emergencies Ministry spokesman Alexander Andreyev said the blast in Vladikavkaz on June 25 left 11 people in a critical condition.

The explosion, apparently caused by a faulty gas canister, tore through a courtyard where wedding guests had assembled.

Reports say the gas was being used to fuel an outdoor grill. There was no suspicion of foul play.
