World's longest single******

WINDHOEK, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- Namibia's Desert Dash officially began Friday as international and local cyclists race from capital Windhoek to the coastal town of Swakopmund in one of Namibia's biggest sporting events.。

Hundreds of cyclists, their support teams, families and cycling fans will meet at Swakopmund during the Nedbank Desert Dash from December 10 to 11, with their spending power expected to boost the economy at the coast. Businesses have been hard hit by the slowdown caused by the decline in tourist numbers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.。

Nedbank Namibia's Public Relations officer Selma Kaulinge said, "This year's event comes at a time when the tourism industry at the coast needs visitors. The pandemic slowed the growth of the Namibian economy and tourism, one of the main sectors at the coast, was hard hit. Through the Desert Dash, it will play a role in restoring to the local tourism industry."

Kaulinge said the event attracts both local and international cyclists this year from Namibia, South Africa, Malawi, the United States, Germany, Portugal, Britain, France, Serbia, Canada, Ireland, Belgium, and Botswana.。

The Nedbank Desert Dash is the longest single-stage mountain bike race in the world, covering over 363km between Windhoek and Swakopmund across the Khomas Hochland and through the Namib Desert in 24 hours.。

All cyclists had to present a negative COVID-19 test in order to take part in this year's event. Enditem。

Fuel tanker explosion claims 98 in Sierra Leone******

A massive fireball, sparked by a fuel tanker explosion, killed 98 people in Sierra Leone's capital Freetown, the West African country's disaster management agency said on Saturday.。

The blast happened when a fuel tanker collided with another truck at a petrol station on Friday night, according to witnesses.。

The flames then spread, burning people in cars and on roads nearby.。

The majority of the victims were street vendors and motorcyclists, many of whom were caught in the blaze while trying to retrieve fuel leaking from the tanker before it ignited, according to volunteer worker Jusu Jacka Yorma.。

The National Disaster Management Agency said in a statement that 98 deaths had been recorded so far and "92 survivors are currently admitted to various hospitals in Freetown."

A nurse at a hospital where victims were sent said that many of them had sustained "serious injuries."

Rescue operations continued under police supervision on Saturday.。

Hundreds of people gathered at the site, many searching for missing relatives under the eye of security forces, witnesses said, adding that contrary to some initial reports, a fuel depot near the accident did not explode.。

Video footage showed a burnt-out tanker and a truck, and the surrounding area littered with husks of vehicles, some still smouldering.。

"Deeply disturbed by the tragic fires and the horrendous loss of life," President Julius Maada Bio wrote on Twitter.。

"My profound sympathies with families who have lost loved ones and those who have been maimed as a result. My government will do everything to support affected families."

Freetown mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr said she was "deeply saddened" by the explosion.。

"The video and photo footage making rounds on social media are harrowing," she wrote on Facebook.。

Despite being rich in diamonds Sierra Leone remains one of the world's poorest countries, its economy was devastated during a 1991-2002 civil war that left 120,000 dead.。

Accidents involving petrol tankers have happened before in the former British colony of 7.5 million.。

In other parts of Africa, similar incidents have also left many dead as people gather to collect leaking fuel.。

In 2009, more than 100 people were killed when a petrol tanker overturned northwest of Kenyan capital Nairobi and an explosion burnt those gathering to try and grab some of the fuel.。

At least 100 people were killed when a tanker exploded in Tanzania in 2019, while in 2015 more than 200 perished in a similar accident in South Sudan.。

U.S. beat Mexico to go top of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying******

CINCINNATI, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie scored late as the United States rose to the top of the North, Central American and Caribbean (CONCACAF) zone World Cup qualifying standings with a 2-0 home win over Mexico on Friday.。

Mexico began brightly and the U.S. had Zack Steffen to thank for not conceding an early goal as the Manchester City goalkeeper made several fine saves.。

But the U.S. regrouped after halftime and Pulisic broke the visitors' resistance in the 74th minute when he headed home following a Timothy Weah cross from the right flank.。

McKennie doubled the lead 11 minutes later when he swept home an angled finish after the ball rebounded off a Mexico defender's leg and fell fortuitously into his path.。

The hosts finished the match with just 10 men after central defender Miles Robinson was sent off for a second booking in the 89th minute.。

The result means the U.S. are now top of the standings in the final round of CONCACAF qualifying with 14 points from seven games, ahead of Mexico on goal difference.。

In other matches on Friday, Jamaica drew 1-1 away to El Salvador, Canada won 1-0 at home to Costa Rica and Honduras fell to a 3-2 home defeat to Panama. Enditem。

Internacional beat Paranaense to eye Libertadores spot******

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- Midfielder Edenilson scored twice as Internacional moved closer to securing a place in next year's Copa Libertadores with a 2-1 home win over Athletico Paranaense in Brazil's Serie A championship on Saturday.。

David Terrans gave Paranaense the lead in the 37th minute when he finished coolly into the bottom-right corner following a counterattack.。

Edenilson equalized three minutes later with a low strike after combining with Carlos Palacios. The Brazil international struck again just after the hour mark by capitalizing on smart work by Mauricio Prado to power a shot past Aderbar Santos.。

The result at the Beira-Rio stadium leaves Internacional sixth in the 20-team standings with 47 points from 32 matches. Paranaense are 10th, six points further back.。

Brazil's Serie A has six direct Copa Libertadores berths, in addition to vacancies for the winners of the Copa do Brasil, Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana.。

In other fixtures on Saturday, Atletico Goianiense were held to a goalless home draw by Santos, America Mineiro won 3-1 at home to Gremio and hosts Bragantino routed Fortaleza 3-0. Enditem。
