Russian City 'Loses' 2,000 Tons of Explosives

Taken from a Russian news site and translated with Google, but you can get the point. Unfortunately, it appears that a potent amount of explosives have disappeared from a Russian city-- enough to take out a portion of a city.
Yekaterinburg lost nearly two thousand tons of explosives. Hundreds of thousands of kilograms of ammonite yarita, grammonite, grammatola emulasta and exported from the JSC "Chemical Plant Kalinowski" missing.

These are explosives used in blasting quarries. Pound for pound it is not as potent as other explosives, but still a dangerous event, especially considering the events in Volgograd lately and the Olympics in Sochi.
