More than 100 people who went to scoop up fuel after a Nigerian petrol tanker tipped over on Thursday were burned to death when the vehicle and pools of spilled oil caught fire.
Children were among those killed, while dozens more were badly burned, despite a warning from troops who arrived at the crash site that a blaze could ignite at any moment.
More than 85 of the victims have been buried at the scene as their bodies, burned beyond recognition, could not be moved.
