The death toll rose after seven more corpses were discovered on Tuesday, the AFP news agency reports, quoting the state television.
The blasts on Sunday hit the Nkoantoma military base in the country’s main city, Bata, and caused huge damage to buildings and homes.
President Obiang Nguema said they had been caused “by the negligence of a unit charged with the care and protection of stores of dynamite and explosives”
