PARIS —

The death toll in the partial collapse of a four-story apartment building has risen to seven in a northeastern Paris suburb after emergency crews pulled the body of an elderly woman from the rubble.

Fire department spokesman Gabriel Plus said the body was found Monday morning in Rosny-sous-Bois.

Officials said there was no longer danger in the neighborhood after the explosion sheared part of the building Sunday, scattering scraps of metal and household belongings. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has said a gas leak is believed to be the cause.
