At least 10 people were killed and hundreds injured after a gas cylinder fell and exploded while being loaded onto a ship at a Jordanian port.
The ISO cylinder containing 25 tons of chlorine fell while being loaded onto a ship by a shore-based crane, causing an explosion of yellow gas that quickly engulfed the ship and the dock.
The ship appears to be Hong Kong’s MV Forest 6, a multipurpose cargo ship.
