Ghana gas explosion kills five in Accra

At least five people have died and dozens injured in an explosion at a gas filling station in Ghana's capital, Accra, according to local media.

The explosion had been caused by "irresponsible human error", the National Petroleum Authority, (NPA) said.

The NPA said two bolts which should have "tightened the lid" of the gas tanker were missing, Joy News reports.
