A village in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the heart of Africa has been razed by a fuel tanker explosion, with at least 330 victims dead or wounded.
The accident happened on Friday 2 July in Sange, about 40 miles south of the town of Bukavu in South Kivu. The petrol tanker travelling from Tanzania overturned and began leaking fuel.
Villagers come to collect the fuel when it exploded claiming at least 220 people and injuring 111.
Some people were trapped inside thatched-roof houses and buildings, including a cinema where a crowd had gathered to watch the World Cup.
UN peacekeepers joined rescue efforts to help evacuate the injured to hospitals in the towns of Bukavu and Uvira. Congolese troops have also been sent to Sange help survivors.
Local officials say that some of the victims had already been buried in mass graves outside the village.
