Ghana President John Dramani Mahama has declared three days of national mourning, starting from Monday, 8th of June after a deadly petrol station fire killed at least 90 people during heavy flooding in the capital, Accra on Wednesday.

The President who visited the scene yesterday described the loss of lives as “catastrophic and almost unprecedented”.  “Rescue operations will continue until the weekend, Sunday.  On Monday, we will observe three days of national mourning for the victims of the fire disaster and flooding,” he said.
