BAMAKO, Mali – An army spokesman says an explosive went off, apparently by accident, in a house on the outskirts of Mali's capital, killing two people.

Commander Modibo Nama Traore said the explosive detonated Friday while a man was handling it. He and a woman were killed. Malian and U.N. troops have surrounded the house, which is close to a mosque. Burn marks could be seen on its walls from afar.
