A special effects assistant was in critical condition after a simulated stinger missile exploded on the set of "Charlie Wilson's War."

Filming on "Charlie Wilson's War" came to a halt yesterday, January 18, 2007 as a simulated stinger missile exploded on the flick's set and got a special effects assistant critically injured, causing the person to undergo a surgery in the evening at St. Francis Medical Center.

The cause of the explosion is still under investigation, but it was reported that the accident occurred when a group of special effects specialists were testing the handheld device at Downey Studios, a former aerospace factory 10 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

"War", a big screen adaptation of the George Crile's book, is a Universal Pictures production which centers on the CIA's largest and most successful covert operation, the arming of the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan. Mike Nichols is directing from script written by Aaron Sorkin for a December 25, 2007 release.
