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. […]

Commando Raids on ISIS Yield Vital Data in Shadowy War

“If we can scoop somebody up alive, with their cellphones and diaries, it really can help speed up the demise of a terrorist group like ISIS,” said Dell L. Dailey, a retired commander of the military’s Joint Special Operations Command and the chairman of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point.Continue reading the main storyAmerican military and intelligence officials caution that the Islamic State is far from defeated, particularly with a sophisticated propaganda apparatus that continues to inspire and, in some cases, enable its global following to carry out attacks. But in the self-proclaimed caliphate across swaths of Iraq and Syria, the terrorist group’s last two major strongholds are under siege, many senior leaders have fled south to the Euphrates River Valley, and its legions of foreign fighters are battling to the death or slipping away, possibly to wreak havoc in Europe.The race to drive the jihadists out of eastern Syria, where they have held sway for three years, has gained new urgency as rival forces converge on ungoverned parts of the region. Syrian forces and Iranian-backed militias that support them are advancing east, closer to American-backed fighters battling to reclaim Raqqa. Russia threatened on Monday to target American and allied aircraft the day after the United States military brought down a Syrian warplane.This highly volatile environment puts an increasing premium on the Special Operations missions.Despite his nom de guerre, Mr. Uzbeki, 39, was a native of Tajikistan, not Uzbekistan, and honed his fighting skills with the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a Taliban-allied jihadist group, according to an American military official. About 10 years ago, he moved to Pakistan, where he had extensive contacts with Al Qaeda, the official said. In recent years, he had moved to Syria and joined the Islamic State’s fighting ranks.Mr. Uzbeki was close to Mr. Baghdadi, the Islamic State’s leader, and helped plot a deadly attack on a nightclub in Istanbul on New Year’s Day.
