TEHRAN, Jul. 04 (MNA) – At least two people were injured and one went missing on Wednesday in an explosion at a defense weapons plant in the southern U.S. state of Arkansas, the plant's operator said.

The explosion happened at the General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems' plant in Camden, about 86 miles (138 km) south of Little Rock, the capital of Arkansas, a company spokesperson said.

The company confirmed the explosion after initially calling it an "incident involving pyrotechnics."

The company also confirmed the production pause at the building where the explosion occurred.
