ACCRA, Oct 8 (Reuters) - At least six people were killed and 35 injured, mostly sufffering burns, after an explosion at a fuel distribution site in Ghana’s capital, fire service spokesman Billy Anaglate said on Sunday.

The explosion on Saturday evening sent a giant fireball into the sky above the eastern part of Accra, causing frightened residents to flee their homes in large numbers. (Reporting by Kwasi Kpodo; Writing by Emma Farge; editing by John Stonestreet)
