At least 13 people have died after a petrol tanker overturned and caught fire in western Kenya on Sunday night.
The crash reportedly happened as the driver tried to avoid a head on collision with another lorry on the busy road between Kisumu and Busia.
People rushed to the scene with jerrycans to siphon off the fuel from the overturned tanker when it exploded.
Around 11 people, including children, are in hospital in a critical condition after suffering severe burns.
