A spectacular explosion that destroyed the capital's main center for contraband gasoline sales probably will not seriously worsen Haiti's fuel shortage from a U.N. embargo, diplomats said Sunday. They said smuggling of fuel from the neighboring Dominican Republic has increased recently in defiance of the embargo imposed in an effort to force the army to let President Jean-Bertrand Aristide return to power.

An explosion at midday Friday toppled a three-story building on a downtown corner packed with merchants and shoppers in Port-au-Prince. Officials said at least 15 people were killed and hundreds hurt. An army communique said chemicals exploded in a pharmaceutical laboratory in the building. The military sought to cut off speculation of a political motive. Tensions are high in Haiti nearly a year after the coup that toppled popularly elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
