Thirteen of 20 storage buildings at Květná filled

Munitions from the former site of Vrbětice near Zlín have been stocked in 13 of 20 available storage buildings in the Czech Army’s Květná depot. The site, which had been mothballed, was reopened following explosions at Vrbětice which killed two employees and compromised public safety for months. The latest items transported included artillery shells. Facilities in Vrbětice were rented to Imex, whose employees died in the explosion. A second major explosion later followed. The police are investigating both incidents.
