Blast damages Tripoli arms dump

TRIPOLI - An explosion damaged an ammunition depot and set off a fire at a military camp on the southern outskirts of the Libyan capital Tripoli on Monday, residents and officials said.
A spokesman for Libya's new interim authorities, Jalal el-Gallal, told Reuters the blast near the international airport appeared to have occurred when soldiers were transporting ammunition at a weapons depot in the base."We know it's not a bomb or sabotage or anything like that," he said.
