The details emerging of the tragic explosion at the the naval base in Cyprus indicate that what blew up was old-fashioned gunpowder:

Why would Iran be making the stuff? And why would it be smuggled to Syria?

And why would *anyone* be so foolish as to store it in the open??

The answer to that question is obvious. But it would start one hell of a flame war here, just mentioning it.

Been wondering about that too... Guess we'll never know all the details.
Maybe Jack Bauer was involved

I like the comment of no risk of any further explosions. Even my limited knowledge of explosives, I can safely say it's hard for gunpowder to blow up twice.
