Explosion kills 12 people in Cyprus

The explosion of confiscated Iranian munitions reported today at the Evangelos Florakis base in Cyprus has led to 12 deaths and at least 60 casualties. The explosion has damaged the Vasiliko Power Plant, resulting in power cuts across much of Cyprus, and has caused significant damage to houses and property in the vicinity of the base.

I express my deepest sympathy to my friends, clients and all Cypriots for the loss of life. I hope there will be no further casualties and that services will be restored as soon as possible.
