LA PAZ, Bolivia -- Bolivian officials say an explosion has killed two people and injured 10 in the same Altiplano region town where eight people died and 40 were injured during weekend Carnival celebrations by a blast that has been blamed on a leak in a gas canister.

Interior Secretary Carlos Romero says three people have been detained after Tuesday night's explosion while authorities investigate its cause.

The blast occurred in Oruro a block from where an explosion happened Saturday night. Romero says investigators are still studying the first blast to see if it was due to a bad connection on a gas canister as originally thought.
