Investigations are underway for two explosions in shipyards of Cartagena which killed at least six people and injured 22 others.
Black smoke rose into the sky from the two blasts, which occurred within about 30 minutes of each other on Wednesday, at two industrial facilities that are at least six kilometers apart.
According to the reports, the first explosion took place aboard a ship undergoing repairs at a facility operated by the Cotecmar firm, whereas the second blast took place at the Astivik Shipyards, owned by a U.S. corporation.
Authorities are looking into the causes of the blasts and whether both were related.
