ER Editor: The Paris American Academy, an American design school, suffered an apparent ‘gas explosion’ later in the day yesterday according to reports, but this causation was determined a little too hastily. The 5th arrondissement (a section of Paris) is around the Latin Quarter and Left Bank of the Seine, popular with tourists.
From the BBC:
Thirty-seven people have been injured, four of them seriously, after a large explosion in central Paris.
The blast took place in a building that housed a design school and the Catholic education system headquarters in Rue Saint-Jacques, in the fifth arrondissement of the French capital.
Emergency workers are searching through the wreckage of the building, with one person still thought to be missing.
According to witnesses, there was a strong smell of gas before the blast.
Local deputy mayor, Edouard Civel, said on social media the cause was a “gas explosion”.
But authorities said the cause of the blast had not yet been determined.
Paris prosecutor Laure Beccuau said after arriving at the scene that initial checks of camera footage suggested the explosion occurred within the building, which was next to the Val de Grâce church.

Was this explosion a media distraction from a globalist summit?
We thank loyal reader BG for drawing our attention to this reader’s (Laurent) observation on the website of Olivier Demeulenaere (scroll way down):
Speaking of summit, radio silence. A world summit is currently being held in Paris in the 2nd arrdt at the Palais Brongniart organized by Macron on June 22 and 23 with the reception of 40 heads of state, the head of the UN, Von der Leyen, IMF, world bank, with quantity lobbies for the establishment of a new global financial pact, namely the financing of southern countries to deal with global warming and poverty. Macron, the opportunist, also wants to take advantage of this to convince the countries of the south to support the Ukrainian party in the current war, namely globalization, and not to be influenced by the Russians.
This summit is bound to cost a lot of money for France, and it’s important to avoid public protests. So the TV doesn’t talk about it and BFM diverts the public’s attention, since the media has plenty to occupy it with its spotlight on a big explosion that strangely enough occurred the day before in Paris, injuring 50 people and requiring lengthy rescue and clearing operations. (excellent timing)
Mind-boggling globalist speech by Macron, the young global leader, to save the planet and advance the MDGs; summit moderated by globalist Bilderberg member Amélie de Montchalin. …

A major explosion occurred in Paris on Wednesday. A historic building collapsed, injuring 37 people, 4 of whom are in critical condition.
One last missing person is still being searched for in the rubble. The cause is probably a gas leak, but an investigation is still ongoing. pic.twitter.com/6yuE55L1Pd
