Explosives destroyed

The Icelandic Coast Guard destroyed and detonated a number of explosives that were found on an old training ground of the US navy base.

The area, known as the Patterson area, recently used to store explosives, is an open area and is not fenced in. A representative from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has warned the public to stay away from the area.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs has also demanded a report on areas in the Reykjanes peninsula used for military practices.
