DOYLINE, La. (AP) — State police say that just over 3 million pounds of explosive propellant has been moved at the northwestern Louisiana industrial site where it was found to be improperly stored a couple of weeks ago.

That's about half the roughly 6 million pounds that authorities said was found at the site of an explosives recycler at Camp Minden in Webster Parish.

The effort to properly separate quantities of the explosive and store it securely began more than a week ago. It was set to rev up again at sunrise Wednesday.
