On January 3, 2013, a blogger posted an indignant screed about an alleged atrocity in Nigeria. Sorry about the disturbing images.
Problem is … the photo is from a terrible tragedy that occurred on July 3, 2010, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. On that day, a fuel tanker overturned and exploded, sending a fireball into nearby homes and cinemas packed with people watching the World Cup. At least 230 were killed and another 196 injured. Many of the dead were charred beyond recognition.
