Tanker ex­plodes; no word on ex­tent of in­jured, dead

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - WORLD -

A tanker ex­plo­sion at a gas­fill­ing sta­tion in Ghana, fol­lowed by a sec­ondary blast, has left sev­eral ca­su­al­ties Satur­day in a sub­urb in north­west Ac­cra, au­thor­i­ties said.

Ghana’s deputy in­for­ma­tion min­is­ter Kojo Op­pong-Nkrumah said that the fire has been con­trolled and fire­fight­ers are con­trol­ling the sec­ond ex­plo­sion.

“It is early days yet to give any fig­ures” on the num­ber in­jured or dead, he said.

The fill­ing sta­tion is near a trans­port ter­mi­nal and close to some hos­tels for the Univer­sity of Ghana in Ac­cra.
