Blasts Kill Nine, 46 Injured In Chad’s Millitary Ammunition Depot- Health Minister


Chad Health Minister, Abdelmadjid Abderahim, confirmed that at least nine people were killed and more than 46 injured in blasts caused by fire at a military ammunition depot in the country’s capital on Tuesday night.

The minister on Wednesday, added that death toll could rise as many people suffered serious injuries.

Recall that explosions lit up the night sky over the military base near the central African nation’s main international airport and sent spent shells flying into nearby homes where terrified residents struggled to find cover.

President Mahamat Idriss Déby on Wednesday visited the site where wrecked cars and twisted metal littered the ground around a crater.
