A Romanian officer was killed Monday in Bucharest following an explosion at a military laboratory dealing with nuclear, biological and chemical research, the defence ministry announced.

The man, aged 37, died in hospital from his injuries.

The ministry insisted however that the explosion, whose cause was not immediately known, "does not pose any threat to the population and did not trigger a fire."

Two other people were also lightly injured in the blast, according to Mediafax news agency, citing hospital sources.

An investigation has now been launched into the causes of the accident, the ministry said, noting that this was "the first of this kind at the military research agency."
