‘Huge Explosion Rocked Kosovo’s Main Power Plant’

#AceWorldNews – PRISTINA – June 06  – A huge explosion rocked Kosovo’s main power plant Friday, killing at least three people and injuring more than a dozen, AP reported, citing a government official.

The blast might have been caused during a botched replacement of hydrogen canisters used for cooling generators.

The powerful explosion was heard in the nearby capital, Pristina, and a black plume of smoke could be seen rising from the coal-fired plant.

It was not immediately clear what caused the blast.
