An official says a gas canister explosion at a wedding reception in southern Russia has injured 46 people.
An Emergencies Ministry official in the province of North Ossetia said 11 people are in critical condition after Saturday's blast ripped through a courtyard where guests were assembling.
Ministry spokesman Alexander Andreyev told The Associated Press that the worst cases would be flown to Moscow for treatment.
Russian news agencies said the gas was being used to fuel an outdoor grill.
There was no suspicion of foul play.
