MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian man's imaginative attempt to purge a stubborn paint stain from his trousers has destroyed his apartment.

The unnamed Muscovite added a litre of petrol to his washing machine to help dissolve the stain, Itar-Tass news agency reported on Monday, but the ensuing explosion wrecked his kitchen and demolished two internal walls.

Moscow police confirmed there had been an explosion in a south-eastern Moscow apartment, but would not comment on the cause.
