Dramatic Explosions Rock Albanian Arms Depot, Kill 160

This morning there was news of a series of dramatic explosions at an arms depot in the village of Gerdec, just seven miles north of the Albanian capital Tirana, where up to 160 people may have been killed, including some U.S. citizens.
The U.S. embassy in Tirana told Reuters it could not confirm the presence of U.S. military personnel at the site. A witness, Albin Mexhaj, told Albania's Top Channel Television there were 100 people at the base.
