More than 130 people were hurt, some critically.

It happened while a gas tanker was unloading combustible gas in Khartoum.

Witnesses said the blast was so powerful it blew the tanker into a nearby lot.

The factory was completely destroyed.

Officials says the death toll could rise as burn victims are treating local hospitals.

The government is appealing for blood donations.
