Eight killed in blast at South African munitions depot

At least eight people were killed in an explosion at a South African munitions depot in Somerset West, near Cape Town, but the cause of the incident was still unknown. The blast occurred at Rheinmetall Denel Munition depot, a joint venture between Germany’s Rheinmetall Defence and South Africa’s state-owned arms maker Denel.

RDM said in a statement that an explosion occurred at one of its buildings, but it could not confirm whether there were any injuries or fatalities. RDM manufactures and supplies selected munitions and explosive related products for armed and police forces in South Africa and around the world.
