A blast in eastern Poland rattled the international community this week, as many world leaders were gathered to meet at the G20 summit. The explosion, which both NATO and Poland now say was likely unintentional, hit a grain silo in the border town of Przewodow the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 15.

News of the explosion, which coincided with a Russian missile attack across Ukraine, quickly stirred up fears that the conflict was widening in scope.
