Ghana: Major explosion as truck carrying explosives hits motorbike

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Ghana: Major explosion as truck carrying explosives hits motorbike” – below is their description.

Ghana police reported a “huge” explosion in the west when a truck carrying explosives from the Tarkwa to Chirano gold mines collided with a motorcycle.

It was not clear how many people had died, but videos posted on local media showed a large blast area in which at least dozens of buildings had been felled and reduced to piles of wood, brick and twisted metal.

“The public has been advised to move out of the area to nearby towns for their safety while recovery efforts are underway,” the police said in a statement.

The explosion occurred between the towns of Bogoso and Bawdie in the Western Region.

Nearby towns have been asked to open up public spaces including classrooms and churches to survivors.
