"A fire at an air base arms depot in north-western Russia has reportedly set off several missiles, but caused no deaths or injuries.

Amateur video shows what appear to be at least two rockets zigzagging through a clear afternoon sky around the Lodeynoe Pole base near St Petersburg.

Unofficial sources say that at least 400 air-to-air rockets were damaged at a cost of about $82m (41m)."
