Many Feared Dead in Nigeria Gas Tanker Fire

A gas tanker truck ignited an inferno at a crowded industrial gas plant in Nigeria, reportedly killing more than 100 people lining up to refill their cooking gas cylinders.

The disaster took place on Thursday in Nnewi, a predominantly Christian community in southeast Nigeria, as residents were rushing to refill their gas cylinders in time for Christmas.
