In Ghana’s capital city of Accra, at least seven people were killed and 132 others injured Saturday, when an explosion ripped through a state-owned liquefied natural gas station, sending a huge fireball into the night sky and setting off a secondary explosion at a nearby filling station. The blast was at least the eighth such explosion in Ghana over the last four years. In 2015, a similar blast in Accra killed over 100 people.
