At least 60 people were killed including two Chinese contractors in eastern Sri Lanka on Friday after an accidental blast at an explosives depot at a police station on Friday. Military spokesman Major General Ubaya Medawala said that police were issuing explosives to Chinese contractors working on a road project when the accident occurred. "It's an accidental explosion. The munitions were kept at the police station for safety reasons. It exploded as police were issuing some munitions to the contractors," Medawala said. "We believe over 60 have died -- this includes two Chinese contractors and the rest policemen," he said.
