Explosion at the Evangelos Florakis base in Cyprus; 12 dead
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 caused damage to the Vasiliko Power Plant, resulting in power cuts across much of Cyprus, as well as major damage to houses and property.
We express our deepest sympathy to our friends, clients and all Cypriots for the loss of life. We hope there will be no further casualty figures and that services will be restored as soon as possible.
