NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Friday there was a possibility that a gas line was "inappropriately accessed" before Thursday's building explosion.

He said a final determination could take as long as a week while workers comb through debris left from the explosion, which damaged four buildings, injured 22 people and left at least two people unaccounted for.
