Preliminary Explanations on Dar explosions

Retired engineer and explosives expert Nebetus Nyamuga has said that the accidental blasts which occurred yesterday at a military base on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam were caused by dangerous trail bombs used in shooting down aircraft.

``These are most dangerous arms which are used to blow up speeding aircraft,`` Nyamuga said in an interview with `The Guardian`. ``These kinds of bombs do explode 15 years after their manufacture and some do explode earlier if they are not properly stored,`` he added.

According to the expert, trail bombs can only be safely destroyed in a place far from the armoury.
