(Reuters) - Cypriot independent and lead investigator Polis Polyviou holds a document during a news conference announcing the conclusions of a report into a munitions dump blast in Nicosia October 3, 2011. Cyprus launched a criminal investigation on July 12, 2011, a day after a massive blast at a munitions dump killed 13 people and destroyed the island's largest power station. The munitions were confiscated by Cyprus in 2009 from a Cyprus-flagged ship sailing to Syria from Iran, in violation of U.N. sanctions, and were stored in scorching summer temperatures yards away from Vassilikos, Cyprus's primary power station which supplied the island with more than half its electricity.
