Nigeria: Gas Pipeline Explosion.
Nigerians scoop petrol after a pipeline of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation burst in the Iyana-Ipaja suburb of Lagos. More than 150 Nigerians, scooping for petrol at this depot, (where imported oil are discharged) were roasted to death in a pipeline explosion. About 200 gas cans and charred remains of the victims littered the scene.
