A fuel tank exploded in Moamer Kadhafi'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 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 AFP.

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