An oil pipeline has exploded in Lagos, Nigeria's capital, killing at least 100 people.
The explosion tore through the Ijegun suburb, engulfing schools and homes after a bulldozer burst the pipeline, reports Reuters news agency.
Red Cross officials said many injured people had been taken to hospital and they were still trying to rescue more.
Among the dead is a two year old baby, emergency relief workers said.
"The fire is still going on, a lot of people are dead. Houses are burned. People are running for their lives," AFP news agency quoted a Red Cross volunteer as saying.
At least 36 people have been taken to a nearby military hospital, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) spokesman Abdulsalam Mohammed said.
Nigeria is one of the world's major oil producers and pipelines cut through many residential areas.
