    (Reuters) - Seven Marines were killed and seven people injured during a training exercise at a military ammunition storage facility in western Nevada, military officials said Tuesday.

    The explosion occurred Monday at 10 p.m. PDT (1 a.m. ET Tuesday) during a Marine training exercise at the Hawthorne Army Depot in western Nevada, said facility manager Russ Collier.

    Victims were airlifted to Renown Regional Medical Center with injuries that included penetration trauma, fractures and vascular injuries, said Stacy Kendall, a spokeswoman for the medical center.

    One was declared dead, three more were in serious condition and five in fair condition.

    The cause of the explosion remains under investigation, said Marine Lt. Col. Neil Murphy Jr.

    Hawthorne Army Depot is a 147,000-acre site used for the storage and destruction of demilitarized ammunition.

      The first thing the higher ups will do is point a finger anywhere else but at themselves and the Corps. SOP. It's a lot more convenient than taking a hard look at your procedures.

    I had thought this was a rant about Israel because of its title. Israel is their own worst enemy. Building settlements in occupied lands, invading without reason or cause and killing Palestinians right and left. And blockading the Gaza strip so they can't make a living. Act of war in the rest of the world.
