10 injured after gas tanker explodes on Iran-Afghanistan border

At least 10 people were hurt when a gas tanker exploded at a customs post in Afghanistan on Saturday, officials said as scores of local residents tried to control a massive fire at the scene near the Iranian border.

The fire in the border town of Islam Qala spread to dozens of nearby fuel trucks, the officials said, and Waheed Qatali, governor of the western province of Herat, said Iranian authorities had been asked for urgent assistance to contain the blaze.
