Lebanon fuel tanker explosion kills at least 20
France24 says at least 20 people were killed and nearly 80 others injured when a fuel tank exploded in northern Lebanon Sunday, burning crowds clamouring for gasoline in the crisis-hit country.
The tragedy overwhelmed medical facilities and spurred a search for the missing, heaping new misery on a nation already beset by an economic crisis and severe fuel shortages that have crippled hospitals and caused long power cuts.
“Our teams have transported 20 dead bodies … from the fuel tanker explosion” to hospitals, the Lebanese Red Cross said on Twitter.
