"Cyprus'[s] foreign minister has formally resigned over the explosion of dozens of gunpowder-filled containers at a naval base that killed 13 people, shaking public confidence in the government. ... The explosion of the containers — which were seized from an Iranian ship in 2009 — also knocked out a key power station and prompted nightly protests in the capital claiming official negligence."
