    An explosion on a tanker ship took place at a shipyard in Germany's Duisburg harbor on Thursday, leaving at least two people dead, a police spokesman said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A large number of police officers and firemen are on the site. The fire brigade took the fire under control, and a risk of another explosion does no longer exist.

    "There are at least two dead, it is now unclear how many people may be injured. We are trying to find out how many people were on board," Ramon Van Der Maat said, as quoted by the Bild media outlet.

    The exact cause of the explosion is yet to be established.
