Nigerian fuel tanker explosion kills at least 36

At least 36 people were killed when a fuel tanker exploded after crashing into a crowded bus in southern Nigeria.

The Federal Road Safety Commisson said the crash happened on Friday (local time) on the Benin-Ore road linking the commercial hub of Lagos with southeast Nigeria. Three people were injured.

Traffic accidents are common in Nigeria, where roads are bad and safety standards poor.

At least 95 people were killed in July last year in southern Nigeria when a petrol tanker crashed and caught fire as people crowded around it to scoop up the fuel.
