At least 23 people were killed and more than 130 others injured on Tuesday in a fire that took place at a factory in the Sudanese capital Khartoum, said a statement by Sudan's Council of Ministers.

"A huge fire took place at Salomi Ceramic Factory at the industrial area in Kober neighborhood of Bahry town," the statement said, reports Xinhua.

At least 23 people were killed and more than 130 others injured who are currently under medical treatment in hospitals, it noted.

According to the statement, the fire was caused by explosion of a gas tanker which was unloading its cargo at the factory.

The cabinet vowed to establish an investigation committee to determine responsibilities in the accident and avoid such reoccurrence in the future.
