Albania rocked by huge explosions
Source: BBC

At least four people have been killed and about 200 injured in a series of explosions at an arms depot near the capital, Tirana.

Juela Mecani, a spokeswoman for Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha, said it was feared the death toll could rise.

She said more than 60 people - including US citizens - were at the scene at the time.

Military experts were disposing of old shells at the time of the blasts.

They were reported to be being assisted by employees of a US company contracted by Nato to help the Albanian army dispose of surplus munitions.

Could be heard 30 miles away - windows shattered at the airport several km away.

2. My thoughts and prayers for the people of Albania
Someday, people will realize how undervalued that nation is.
