More than 200 people have died and at least a hundred have been injured after a fuel tanker overturned and exploded in a village in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
The UN now has checked initial reports that several peacekeepers were killed while trying to stop people going near the burning lorry and says they are not correct and none of its personnel have been killed.
The lorry was on its way from Tanzania when the accident happened at a border village in South Kivu province.
The provincial governor says many of those who were killed or injured were inside their homes watching the World Cup match on television.
Rescue workers are warning the number of dead may rise.
