Massive explosions rock Cyprus navy base: report

NICOSIA (Reuters) - Massive explosions rocked a navy base in southern Cyprus Monday after a munitions dump apparently caught fire, local media said.

Police confirmed an incident but were not in a position to give immediate details. Ambulances were seen rushing to the scene.

"It looks like a bombed-out landscape," a witness told Sigma television.
