If it doesn't happen on an EU border, it doesn't happen

Reuters --

The death toll in South Sudan from the explosion of a fuel truck this week has risen to 182, a regional official said on Friday. The blast occurred on Wednesday as crowds gathered around the tanker to gather fuel after it had veered off the road. An official had earlier said the toll could keep rising as South Sudan did not have adequate facilities to treat the burns. " ... Such incidents have happened before in the east African region where fuel tankers often have to travel long distances along potholed roads and pass through poor communities. There are almost no tarmac roads in South Sudan, one of Africa's poorest nations, which has been mired in conflict since December 2013.
