A massive explosion rocked Milan in Italy on Thursday, leaving several cars on fire and plumes of thick black smoke rising above the wreckage.
The explosion took place in the center of the city, according to Sky tg24. According to preliminary data, it was a parked van that exploded, according to Leggo.
It looks like a terrorist attack from the initial pictures and videos but nothing can be said for sure just yet.
No casualties have been reported yet. Further investigation is underway.
Several videos and pictures of the explosion's aftermath are going viral on social media now.
Evacuation is underway from neighbouring houses and a nearby school.
