Several people were missing and others were injured after an explosion today at a chemical plant at BASF's headquarters in western Germany, the firm said, advising local people to stay indoors.

"There was an explosion with several people injured for as-yet undetermined reasons at around 11:30 (local time) at BASF Ludwigshafen," it said in a press release.



"Emergency services from the whole region are on the scene to prevent the fire spreading to other parts of the plant," Ludwigshafen city authorities said in a statement.

The company said local residents should remain inside and shut doors and windows.
