Two bodies have been found at the site of a gas explosion, which destroyed three New York City apartment buildings last week.

Police say the bodies were recovered in an area reduced to rubble by the blast and subsequent fire, last Thursday.

New York Fire Department officials say everyone who was reported missing has now been found, and it's unlikely any more victims will be discovered.

The two men were believed to be in a sushi restaurant in the building where the explosion occurred.

The blast, in the heart of Manhattan's East Village, started a fire in four buildings, causing three of them to collapse. 19 people were injured, as well as the two missing.
