Tanzania tanker explodes killing dozens trying to siphon fuel

Flames roared and black smoke billowed over the eastern Tanzanian town of Morogoro after a tanker overturned and burst into flames, killing at least 60 people who had rushed to the site hoping to siphon petrol. Government officials said 70 were injured in the blast in the town some 200 km west of the commercial capital Dar es Salaam. An unidentified motorcycle taxi driver told Reuters his customer was burnt alive after falling into the flames. The government was helping to coordinate the recovery operation of the bodies.
