ULAN-UDE, May 28 (Itar-Tass) — A motor vehicle carrying ammunition to be scrapped exploded near the Tsugol testing site in Russia’s Trans-Baikal Territory early on Monday, a source in the law enforcement agencies told Itar-Tass.
No victims were reported.
The Mogoytuysky district administration confirmed the information about the incident.
“There was no information about victims. The incident is being investigated,” the source said.
Over the past ten days this has been third such incident.
