Explosions occur at Jordanian military munitions depot

Zarqa (Jordan), Sep 11 (AP):

 Several explosions occurred early Friday in a Jordanian military base warehouse where unsuitable mortar bombs were being dismantled, authorities said.

The warehouses are in an isolated area east of the city of Zarqa, a government spokesperson and the armed forces said. The surrounding area was sealed by security forces.

No injuries so far have been recorded, the state-run new agency Petra reported, citing a government spokesperson, Amjad Adaileh.

A preliminary investigation indicates the explosions were caused by an electrical fault in the warehouse, Adaileh added.

The statement from the armed forces said a committee was formed to determine the causes of the explosion.
