Massive explosion at gas station rocks Ghana’s capital Accra – Reuters witness

ACCRA, Oct 7 (Reuters) – A gas station in Ghana’s capital
Accra exploded on Saturday evening, sending a giant fireball
high into the sky above the city as frightened residents fled
the scene, a Reuters witness said.

At least six fire trucks and several ambulances responded to
the blast at the city’s Atomic Junction near the University of
Ghana. It was not immediately clear if there were casualties.
