Russia's Rusal suspends work at alumina plant after arms depot fire

MOSCOW, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Russian aluminium producer Rusal suspended operations at its Achinsk alumina plant on Monday and evacuated all but essential staff after a fire broke out a nearby Russian military base, Rusal said.

An ammunition depot at a military base in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk caught fire earlier on Monday and an explosion was heard, the RIA news agency reported. (Reporting by Anastasia Lyrchikova and Polina Devitt; writing by Tom Balmforth; editing by Deepa Babington)
