The circumstances of the blast on Thursday afternoon in the village of Caphiridzange in Tete Province, near the border with Malawi, remain unclear.

Some reports say the driver of the tanker was trying to sell fuel to villagers, others that he was ambushed.

Dozens of charred bodies lay around the blast site. Some of the badly burned victims had tried to run into the Local River, Radio Mozambique said.
