Oil Tanker Fire in Pakistan Leaves More Than 140 Dead

PhotoBurned bodies and the wreckage of an oil tanker that caught fire after overturning on a highway in central Pakistan on Sunday.Credit Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesISLAMABAD, Pakistan — An oil tanker caught fire and exploded after overturning on a road in eastern Pakistan on Sunday, killing at least 140 people and seriously injuring at least 50 more after they rushed toward the vehicle in an effort to collect fuel as it gushed from the tanker.The authorities were investigating what caused the oil tanker to overturn and create an inferno, although one official suggested that it was probably caused by an engine spark.The tanker overturned in Ahmedpur East, a small city in Punjab Province, as it was traveling from the southern port city of Karachi to Lahore, the province’s capital. It was believed to be carrying 5,500 gallons of oil, officials and the state-run news media reported.The blast occurred about 45 minutes after the tanker crashed, Reuters reported, and Pakistani television networks broadcast images of dozens of people collecting the fuel in bottles and buckets before the site turned into a giant fireball, and thick plumes of smoke enveloped the area after the explosion.“We kept on telling people to leave the crash site, but people wouldn’t listen and more kept coming,” said Muhammad Rizwan, a police official. “We knew it was dangerous, and if there were more cars and bikes, the casualties would have been much higher.”PhotoRescue workers and paramedics taking a burn victim to a hospital in Multan, Pakistan, on Sunday.Credit Mansoor Abbas/Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesThe explosion left most of the bodies charred beyond recognition, and the death toll could rise because dozens of victims are still in critical condition, The Associated Press reported, citing Dr. Mohammad Baqar, a senior rescue official in the area.At least 73 motorbikes and several cars were also destroyed in the blast, which occurred the day before Pakistan celebrates Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday at the end of Ramadan.The injured were taken to the district hospital and Victoria Hospital in neighboring Bahawalpur, but the response was hindered by a shortage of facilities to treat burn victims. Arrangements were being made to take the seriously injured to a hospital in Multan, about 80 miles to the north, which has a burn-treatment unit. The Pakistan Army said it had sent two helicopters to help with the rescue efforts.Abdul Rashid, 30, one of those injured, said he and his friend had joined in collecting the spilled fuel after passing by the area and seeing people trying to scoop it up from the overturned tanker.“I parked my bike by the road and waited while my friend went to collect the fuel,” said Mr. Rashid, who had burns on his hand and a leg. “We did not have any bottles, so we asked people and got one. The bottle was small, so my friend went thrice to collect the fuel.”He said he did know what had happened to his friend after the fire broke out.There were no immediate information about why the tanker had overturned: speeding at a sharp turn, a burst tire or something else. .PhotoBurned out cars and motorcycles at the scene of an oil tanker explosion in Pakistan on Sunday.Credit ReutersA loudspeaker at a nearby mosque told villagers about the leaking fuel, prompting scores of people to rush to the site, said Rana Mohammad Salim, the deputy commissioner of Bahawalpur, according to The A.P.Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif, the chief minister of Punjab, expressed his grief over the loss of life, said an aide, Salman Sufi.“The chief minister is monitoring the situation and has directed the authorities to provide the best medical facilities to the injured,” Mr. […]

All Blacks Face Down Lions Challenge to Win First Test

“I thought it was hell of a test match … it was two pretty skilful teams working very hard for each other.”Continue reading the main storyThe tourists scored the best try of the night through flanker Sean O’Brien and got a late consolation effort from replacement scrumhalf Rhys Webb with Owen Farrell chipping in with a penalty and a conversion.The Lions made enough linebreaks to head to next week’s second test in Wellington confident they can score against the All Blacks but know they will have to cut down on the errors if they want to win a first series in New Zealand since 1971.”I think we left a couple out there,” said Lions skipper Peter O’Mahony.”I thought we put them under pressure at times. There’s a huge amount to be played for now down in Wellington.”The first of the linebreaks could have secured the Lions the opening try in the first two minutes but winger Elliot Daly was bundled into touch after centre Jonathan Davies had stormed through the All Blacks midfield.Barrett scored the first three points from a penalty after 14 minutes, though, and four minutes later the All Blacks caught the Lions napping with a quick tap from a second.The home side moved the ball quickly down the line to Taylor out on the wing and the hooker picked it off his boot laces to score.Barrett sent the conversion sailing through the posts and the All Blacks were 10-0 in front, their nerves settled and any hopes the tourists had of catching them cold gone.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.
