Killer Explosion

An Explosion in Africa Killed Over 100

More than 100 people have been killed in Kenya in Africa after a truck carrying fuel exploded.

The fuel tanker was near the town of Molo when it crashed, spilling gas all over the road. Lots of people gathered around to try to collect the fuel.

At some point the spilled gas caught fire and the tanker exploded, killing at least 111 people and hurting more.

Officials don't know exactly how the fire started, but are worried that the number of people killed could rise.


Some people think a lit cigarette may have started the blaze, while others say it was lit on purpose.


The incident comes just days after a devastating fire at a supermarket in the Kenyan capital Nairobi killed at least 25 people.

    The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.

    No. Edit: To clarify, not everyone's opinions matter on every topic. For example, my opinion on how I feel about quantum mechanics doesn't matter because I know almost nothing about it, and I definitely don't know it on a level where I could describe it accurately with math. Or, if someone is to show time and time again that they have no idea what they're talking about for a specific subject, their opinion about it obviously matters less since they're most likely just willfully uninformed. For worldly things like you might see in the Dear Dish-It section, still not everyone's opinions matter though input, even if silly, is usually a good thing.

    While there are quote ''good opinions'' there are supposibly ''bad opinions'' So does every one's opinion truly matter? dispite what they taught us in school.
