A bomb blast near a commercial building in Ottawa, Canada has killed at least six people and injured dozens more, police said. Authorities are searching for missing workers.

Three people were taken to hospital after an explosion Thursday afternoon in the Canadian capital, Napier, and authorities were searching for five others, Ottawa police said.
