The damaged Mari power station _ the island's primary electricity generator _ damaged by the explosion's concussion wave near t the Evangelos Florakis naval base in Mari, Cyprus, on Monday July 11, 2011. A huge explosion tore through a Cypriot National Guard naval base causing widespread damage, the Defense Ministry said. At least 10 people were feared dead. A bush fire ignited gunpowder stored in containers that Cypriot authorities confiscated in 2009 from a ship sailing off its coast. The ship, the Cypriot-flagged Monchegorsk, had been suspected of heading from Iran to Syria, with gunpowder destined for Gaza. It was seized in February 2009. (AP Photo/Philippos Christou) less
