Gas pipeline explodes in Ukraine

(NBC) - A gas pipeline in central Ukraine exploded Tuesday.

Video from Ukraine's Emergencies Ministry purported to show flames coming from the pipeline.

The pipeline is located on the main pipeline that carries Russian gas through Ukraine to the rest of Europe.

Ukraine's Interior Minister said Wednesday the explosion was caused by a bomb.

That prompted Ukraine's Prime Minister to order security reinforcement on the country's gas pipeline network.
