Drone footage showed the aftermath of explosions at an Equatorial Guinea military base that left at least 98 people dead and hundreds injured.

According to the U.S. Navy on Wednesday, troops will assist the community following the blasts that took place on Sunday in the port city of Bata. This handout satellite photos provided by Maxar Technologies shows the epicenter of the explosion, in Bata, Equatorial Guinea, Tuesday, March 9, 2021.

The president of the Central African nation said the damage was caused by negligence and the mishandling of dynamite.

I would definitely say, to answer your question, if people are finding ordnance, it is definitely not safe to pick ordnance up,” a U.S. Naval officer stated. “It’s unexploded ordnance. It’s very dangerous, you should definitely not be touching that ordnance.

Meanwhile, authorities have continued to search for survivors in the rubble.
