Tripoli: A fuel tank exploded in Moammar Gaddafi's hometown Sirte killing more than 100 people less than a week after the deposed despot was captured and killed there, a military commander said on Tuesday.

"There was an enormous explosion and a huge fire. More than 100 people were killed and 50 others wounded" in Monday night's blast, National Transitional Council commander Leith Mohammed told.

He said the scene was "a heart wrenching spectacle with dozens of charred bodies."
