RT said on August 31 that an explosion at the Sverdlov munitions plant in Dzerzhinsk, Nizhny Novgorod region, has killed at least three people and injured several more. Some may still be trapped under rubble at the plant, which is one of the biggest munitions factories in Russia. At least four people were injured in the accident, RT said, citing the local governor.

Tass said another three people were missing, quoting another official. The official said that a part of the wall collapsed and it is too early to say whether any staff remain under the debris.

It is thought ammonal explosive caused a blast in one of the workshops of the Sverdlov plant, and a fire engulfed an area of around 100 square metres. The blaze was later extinguished by firefighters.

The Sverdlov plant is more than 100 years old and is currently one of the biggest munitions facilities in Russia, located around 400 km from Moscow. It produces industrial explosives, detonators and booster leads for the mining industry.
