More than 40 people injured in cafe bombing in Serbia

Two children were among the injured, and four people are in extremely serious condition.

In the Serbian city of Urosevac there was a powerful explosion in a cafe, which resulted in injuries of varying degrees of severity to at least 42 people, reports rts.

The local prosecutor’s office reported that among the injured there are two children, and the condition of four people is assessed as extremely serious. Twenty-two people have been hospitalized in the city, and another 12 in the clinical center of Pristina.

Recall, representatives of the FBI of the USA have published new details of the explosion in the port of the capital of Lebanon. It is reported that the explosion at the port was caused by a much smaller quantity of ammonium nitrate than was thought.

In particular, according to FBI representatives, the explosion was caused by 500 tons of ammonium nitrate, while the warehouse, as previously reported, contained about 2,700 tons of the substance.

The Beirut bombing was one of the most powerful non-nuclear explosions in history. The August 4 disaster was the result of an accidental explosion of about 2,750 tons of improperly stored ammonium nitrate. About 190 people were killed and more than 6,000 injured as a result.
