Two explosions rocked Daphne Caruana Galizia’s car according to a man who was driving uphill in the opposite direction at the time of the incident.

Speaking to MaltaToday, Frans Sant said he heard a relatively small explosion coming from the car that was coming towards him.

“I stopped and some seconds later there was a second, much larger explosion and the car burst into flames,” he said.

Sant explained that the burning car continued rolling forward, passing a few metres away from his vehicle before entering the fields where it stopped.

Caruana Galizia had just left her home some metres up the hill and was driving a white rental Peugeot 108.
