Two killed when fertiliser silo collapses

Two men died when a steel silo of chemical fertiliser collapsed near Český Krumlov in south Bohemia on Thursday. Four employees were filling the silo when part of it gave way; only two of them managed to escape before the whole structure came crashing down. A special team has mounted a clean-up of the nitrogen fertiliser which spread over the surrounding area, including an adjacent road.
