I haven't commented on this because it's just unspeakably sad. The flags here have been at half staff for the last two days as a period of national mourning. This morning a friend sent me a picture of the aftermath of the devastation that I never wanted to see. It looked like Pompeii.
From the BBC:
At least 230 people were killed when the overturned oil tanker exploded and sparked a fire in Sange village.
Some of those who died were trying to collect leaking fuel but others were trapped inside buildings, including a cinema, by the blaze.
UN peacekeepers, aid workers and troops have been helping the injured.
Weak state = few public goods = no fire department when you need one. At least 60 of the dead were children.
Oh, oh, oh.
