At least 73 people have been killed in a fuel truck explosion in Mozambique, officials say.

More than 100 others were injured, some of them critically, it said.

One report said that the truck had crashed and people had been trying to siphon off fuel.

Announcing an investigation, information ministry director Joao Manasses said it was also possible that the vehicle had been ambushed by residents.
