An explosion at a petrol station in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, has left at least 70 people dead, the country's fire brigade said.
Many of the victims had sought shelter at the station due to torrential rain.
About a dozen people were taken to hospital after the blast, which is believed to have been an accident linked to the downpour, Prince Billy Anaglate, the fire brigade's spokesman said.
