Firefighter rescue teams search for victims after an explosion swept two restaurants and a pharmacy in a suburban neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro, on October 19, 2015. A powerful explosion suspected to be caused by illegally stockpiled gas canisters ripped through a Rio de Janeiro neighbourhood Monday, injuring at least seven people and destroying homes and businesses.
