At least 12 people have been killed in a massive explosion at a military base in the south of Cyprus.

The blast, which ripped through the Evangelos Florakis naval base, has also knocked out the island’s largest power plant.

A number of people have also been injured.

It is thought the blast happened in a dump housing munitions that Cyprus had confiscated from a ship travelling to Syria from Iran in 2009.
