Accidental blast at Libya army base kills 11 - source

BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - At least 11 people were killed by an accidental blast at a Libyan military base in the eastern city of Al Bayda, a security source said on Monday.

The source said a preliminary investigation showed the explosion may have been caused by high temperatures in a weapons storage area at the base.

No other details or official comment were immediately available.
