An oil tanker in the Democratic Republic of the Congo killed 230 people and injured nearly 200 more when it flipped over and exploded in the middle of the street Friday afternoon. Five of the dead were United Nations peacekeepers. The truck was trying to overtake a bus before it wound up on its side with oil leaking out. Residents of the town, Sange in South Kivu province, scrambled to collect the oil, but one had a cigarette that triggered a massive explosion. Most of the victims were in a nearby bar watching the World Cup. The fire continued to burn until Saturday morning.
