An explosion in 'EdePro' company manufacturing parts for missiles, rocket turbo engines and fuel, shook the Belgrade suburb of Lestane on Tuesday, leaving two workers dead and 16 injured, according to firefighters at the site.

The cause of the explosion is still to be determined, but Milos Majstorivic, the commander of the firefighting brigade, has told reporters that it occurred at the warehouse storing 500 rockets with 30 kilograms of explosives each.

„At the moment, the situation is stable, and the drones with thermal imaging cameras are searching for possible casualties,“ he said.
