SEOUL, South Korea--An electrical problem caused an explosion at a South Korean subway station Monday evening, lightly injuring 11 people, an emergency official said.
A part of the train's electrical insulation device was damaged and triggered the explosion at a station in Gunpo city just south of Seoul, local emergency official Yoo Hyung-gi said. He said operations later resumed at the station.
Earlier this month, a subway train plowed into the back of another train at a station in Seoul, inflicting mostly minor injuries to more than 240 people.
