HONIARA, Sep 21, 2020, RNZ. Two people in Solomon Islands have died after suffering injuries from a bomb blast in Honiara, Radio New Zealand reported.
Police said the two, an Australian and a British citizen, were working for a Norwegian aid agency conducting a survey on unexploded ordnances.
Inspector Clifford Tunuki said police were working overnight to clear the site of the explosion, which took place in a residential area in west Honiara.
Investigators will try to determine why explosives were present at a block of residential flats, which also serve as the project office.
The project aims to locate unexploded bombs dating back to the Second World War.
