A truck carrying natural gas exploded on Thursday in Peru’s capital, killing at least two people and injuring 48 in an accident that Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra labeled a “tragedy,” APA reports quoting Reuters 

The truck burst into flames after it hurtled off a ramp on a street in Lima, breaking a valve, leaking gas and igniting several nearby homes. At least 11 children were sent to local hospitals with severe burns, authorities said.
