SEVEN personnel of the Royal Brunei Land Forces (RBLF) were injured yesterday when a military transport boat caught fire at the Royal Brunei Navy base in Muara.

The victims, who were taken to Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital, are reported to be in stable condition, said the Ministry of Defence.

The fire on the boat, which belongs to the RBLF combat boat squadron, was believed to be caused by a mechanical fault, but the Royal Brunei Armed Forces and the Royal Brunei Police Force are still conducting investigations.
