An explosion at a petrol station in Accra, Ghana, has left at least 7o people dead and about a dozen people injured.
According to Al Jazeera, most of the victims had sought shelter at the station due to heavy rain.
Sources say the blast was an accident which was probably linked to the torrential rain.
“This is a very busy area of Accra. Lots of people. Lots of car traffic. And because of the heavy rains people gathered at this gas station to seek shelter and this explosion happened,” Al Jazeera correspondent, Boateng said.
