LONDON--Nine ArcelorMittal (MT) workers, including four of Indian nationality, were injured in a gas explosion at one of the three coke ovens at the steel maker's Ostrava steel plant in the eastern part of the Czech Republic.

ArcelorMittal spokeswoman Barbora Cerna Dvorakova said Wednesday that the workers were being treated for burns and a fractured limb at a local hospital. The explosion occurred at 10:15 local time and resulted in the shutdown of the coke oven battery No 11.

Ms. Dvorakova said the company was gradually resuming coke production and steel production wasn't affected by the incident. The company hasn't yet identified the cause of the explosion, she said.

ArcelorMittal is the world's largest steelmaker accounting for some 6% of global steel production.
