Freetown fuel tanker explosion
Reports state that a bus full of people were "completely" burnt and nearby shops and markets caught fire after fuel spilled over the streets.
The crash provided a major challenge for Freetown's health service already creaking from years of underfunding. The 2014-2016 Ebola epidemic gutted the country's ranks of medical staff, 250 of whom died, and the system has not recovered.
