#2 I'd say that one of the cars on the lorry was wired up and loaded up as a boom mobile.

A BIG boom mobile.

Cars and transport trucks don't explode like this.

#3 You have to go to a lot of effort to make a bang that big...

I'd consider it being looked at going higher up the page to terrorism?

A good question, Bright Pebbles. I just posted an update: a fuel truck exploded, but the authorities still haven’t decided on the cause. Let’s continue to watch for updates, because jihadis remain a real possibility.

#5 US Iran sanctions will be reimposed tomorrow.

Iranian show of asymmetrical war fighting force?

#6 Do fuel trucks explode? Looks more like a Fuel-Air truck explosion to me.

#7 We do have a consensus that it was NOT an accident.

#8 Gorb: I haven't read anything, but I think a BLEVE explosion could produce similar effects to a fuel-air explosion.

#9 That's more believable. ;-)

And even if it is terror, it seems that incinerating a Peugeot dealership might actually count as mitigating circumstances.
