At least 23 people have been killed in Sudan’s capital Khartoum after a fire triggered by an explosion tore through a factory, the government said.
The blaze also injured nearly 130 people, several critically, the government said in a statement on Tuesday, suggesting the death toll from the fire could rise as the burned were being treated at local hospitals.
