In Equatorial Guinea, at least 20 people were killed and hundreds injured in a series of explosions near a military barracks. The blasts created a chaotic scene, sending massive plumes of smoke into the air and ripping roofs off buildings as wounded people were carried away to the hospital. The blasts were caused by the “negligent handling of dynamite,” according to President Teodoro Obiang Nguema, who has ordered an investigation and appealed for international assistance to rebuild.
