Gas Truck Blast in Haiti Kills at Least 60 People

At least 60 people died when a tanker truck carrying gasoline exploded in Haiti’s second-largest city, Haitian officials said Tuesday, the latest in a string of recent tragedies to hit the hemisphere’s poorest nation that include a presidential assassination, a devastating earthquake and mass kidnappings.

Patrick Almonor, the deputy mayor of Cap-Haïtien, told local radio station Magik9 that the death toll from the late Monday blast was likely to rise further since the explosion burned some 20 nearby homes, likely with victims trapped inside that had not yet been counted, he said.
