2 Workers Killed in Blast in Antelias Quarry

Two foreign laborers died and several others were injured on Monday in an explosion at a quarry north of Beirut, media reports said.

The blast went off while the workers of the stone-crushing plant in Antelias were welding a diesel tank, they said.

The flames caused a second explosion at a nearby dynamite depot, the reports added.

The dead men are a Syrian and a Bangladeshi.

It was not clear if there were any Lebanese among the wounded workers.
