"At least 16 people, including rescue workers and journalists, died when a lorry carrying fertiliser blew up after a road accident in Romania. The overturned truck caught fire and exploded as police and firefighters arrived at the scene in Mihailesti - about 70km (43 miles) from Bucharest. Two journalists filming the incident were among those killed in the blast at 0400GMT on Monday. The Interior Ministry said the truck was carrying ammonium nitrate. Romania's Junior Health Minister Aurel Nechita said at least seven firefighters, two policemen and the two reporters were among the dead."
