Iran Sympathizes with Ghana over Deadly Gas Station Blast, Flooding

Politics - Iran’s foreign ministry expressed deep condolences to the Ghanaian nation and government over recent deadly gas station explosion and flooding in the West African country’s capital, which killed at least 150 people.

In a statement, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham condoled with the bereaved families of the victims of “tragic incident”.

She further emphasized that the Iranian embassy in Accra is ready to provide any kind of assistance for the victims through utilizing the Islamic Republic’s medical facilities in Ghana.

More than 150 people died in a devastating petrol station blast during heavy flooding in Ghana's capital, prompting the nation's leader to call three days of national mourning over the "catastrophic" loss of life.

The fire hit a filling station in Accra late on Wednesday, causing an explosion at the pumps that killed dozens of people seeking shelter from torrential rains and widespread flooding in the area that also claimed numerous victims.
