Fire and explosions shake the capital

Explosions could be heard as the fire raged through piles of old vehicles and other rubbish on waste land near Haspolat. Eye witnesses said these were followed by sprays of metal particles. Two nearby houses had to be evacuated as Civil Defence, police, Lefkoşa Turkish municipality and Değirmenlik municipality workers joined the fire brigade to help bring the blaze under control.
