Mourning in DR Congo after tanker fire

Scores of victims of disaster in east of the country buried in mass graves.

    It's a day of mourning for many in the Democractic Republic of Congo after a fuel tanker overturned and exploded in a massive fireball.

    The explosion killed at least 230 people and injured nearly 200 others.

    Funerals have been held for victims of the blast, which tore through a village and reduced a market to ashes. Most were buried in two mass graves.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb reports from the scene of the disaster near the village of Sange in south Kivu province.
