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.
