Dramatic footage captures the moment a fireworks warehouse blows up in Colombia, injuring at least two people. A least two people have reportedly been injured when a fireworks factory exploded in Colombia. Firefighters responded to a huge blaze caused by the blast in the town of Granada, near the capital Bogata. Rescue teams say they have been unable to get close to the site to establish if anyone else has been hurt. One of those injured was reportedly a driver who was passing the warehouse when it exploded.

The story goes that when the ruler of Granada, Muhammad XII of Granada, was forced out of the city in January 1492, he took one last look at the Alhambra and wept.

After almost 800 years, Muslim rule had left an undeniable mark on the rugged, mountainous and fertile lands of southern Spain, but that was now all over.
