People look at charred bodies following fuel tanker explosion in Okogbe near Port Harcourt Nigeria. As many as 200 villagers trying to scoop up fuel from an overturned tanker were killed in southern Nigeria today, when the petrol carrying vehicle exploded in a horrific inferno. The incident occurred in a village of the southern Rivers state where people had rushed to collect petrol, that had spilled from a tanker that had overturned. Eyewitnesses said the fuel-laden tanker skidded off the road, spilling its contents, while trying to avoid a head-on collision with a Toyota Corolla car. A spark led to a fire that engulfed the area, killing scores of villagers and injuring many others.
