Man Charged in Gun Powder Explosion

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA (AP) - A Council Bluffs man has been charged in connection with a gunpowder explosion at a Boy Scouts meeting in March.

The Council Bluffs Nonpareil reports 50-year-old Erik Moore faces a charge of possession of an incendiary or explosive device. A message left for an attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.   

Authorities say scouts and their fathers met at Moore's home in late March and an experiment involving gunpowder created an explosion. Six people were injured.

Two boys were hospitalized with burns.
