At least 11 people, most of them children, were killed when a series of explosions at an Afghan gas storage facility triggered a massive inferno in a nearby settlement for displaced people.

It was not immediately clear whether the blasts on the edge of the relatively peaceful western city of Herat were the result of an accident or caused by a militant attack.

The explosions triggered a plume of flames into the night sky, which rapidly spread to a nearby settlement of mud houses for internally displaced people where most of the deaths occurred.
