Explosion on a container ship in Dubai’s port sends tremors across the city
The Guardian has reported that a container ship anchored at Dubai's port caught fire yesterday, 7 July, causing a huge explosion that sent tremors across the United Arab Emirates commercial hub.
The Guardian further stated: "The blaze sent up giant orange flames on a vessel at the crucial Jebel Ali port, the busiest in the Middle East, and unleashed a shock wave through the skyscraper-studded city, causing walls and windows to shake in neighbourhoods as far as 25 kilometres (15 miles) away.
"Dubai authorities told the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV that the crew had evacuated in time and that the fire appeared to have started in one of the containers holding “flammable material,” without elaborating."
