TEHRAN (Reuters) - A massive explosion at a military weapons depot near the Iranian capital Tehran on Saturday killed several people and was felt at least 45 km (30miles) away, local media reported.
The Revolutionary Guards -- Iran's elite military force -- said a munition store at a base in Bidganeh, near the city of Karaj, had exploded, according to a statement carried by the semi-official Fars news agency.
"Around noon today there was an explosion in one of the arsenals belonging to the Revolutionary Guards near Tehran," Fars quoted the statement as saying. Several people had been killed, Fars said, without giving further details.
The blast was so big it was felt in western suburbs of Tehran, 45 km away, witnesses told Reuters. Many assumed there had been a low-level earthquake. Some media reports said the initial blast was followed by a second explosion.

Just exploded. Just blew up out of nothing. Just boom. Like wow dude.
While assembling IED’s, Kamelhad a pre-mature detonation.
What is MOSSAD an acronym for? Just curious.
Maybe, just maybe, was it a bad idea to move the training school for suicide bombers there?
There could be a lot of that going around soon,so to speak.
Makers Of Some Serious Asswhuppin’ Deliveries
The Mossad (Hebrew: המוסד, Arabic: الموساد), short for HaMossad leModi'in uleTafkidim Meyuchadim (Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations) (Hebrew: המוסד למודיעין ולתפקידים מיוחדים Arabic: الموساد للاستخبارات والمهام الخاصة al-Mōsād lil-Istiḫbārāt wal-Mahāmm al-Ḫāṣṣah), is the national intelligence agency of Israel. The Mossad is responsible for intelligence collection and covert operations which are suspected to include targeted killings and paramilitary activities beyond Israel's borders, bringing Jews to Israel from countries where official Aliyah agencies are forbidden, and protecting Jewish communities worldwide. It is one of the main entities in the Israeli Intelligence Community, along with Aman (military intelligence) and Shin Bet (internal security), but its director reports directly to the Prime Minister.
Allah Akbar !
No matter who you work for, no matter what flag you follow... The cold truth is that most safe-handling procedures are the product of brutal experience. The saying goes that they are written in blood. The blood of those that learned - the hard way - the wrong way to do things.
Could this have been "enemy action?" Sure. Also could have been someone's simple mistake, lack of attention to detail, or could have been the Iranian Military learning to modify their procedures - the hard way.
Did the Israelis provide assistance in this explosion? Here’s hoping that a large radioactive cloud was released from imanutjob’s nuclear program.
Benny says HOWDY!
Triggering device is fully operational.
Natural gas leak.
Through a spokesman, the MOSSAD released the following statement: “What? Why ya lookin’ at me?”
Actually, having to choose between Isreali cunning and Iranian incomptence, is a close run thing.
