A fire continues to burn along a ruptured pipeline in Oviri court in Adedje in the Niger-Delta area of Nigeria July 12 after an explosion on the pipeline that claimed the lives of 250 people on July 11. Cash crops and acres of farmland were destroyed by the fire. It was the latest in a series of incidents in which scavengers have been burned to death by pipeline blazes in recent years.
