Blasts in Mozambique Kill Almost 100

96 people were killed and over 400 injured after a series of explosions at a Mozambique weapons depot near Maputo, according to BBC News. This was the second time in less than two months that old weapons in an arsenal have exploded there. Initial explosions caused additional ones; 20 tons of old weapons have been waiting to be destroyed.

Officials say that warm temperatures probably caused it, and that an investigation would be conducted.
