During loading, it is believed that a 120mm PEPA mortar was dropped and detonated. The resulting explosion spread to similar items already loaded and a massive explosion killed four of the loaders nearest to the truck and the ex-pat supervisor. The supervisor may have been walking away from the truck or been in its cab at the time. He was killed when a small fragment hit him in the back of the head and penetrated his brain. He died at the scene.
