Ghana Market Burns

Smoke billowing from the Mallam market in the early hours of Monday, October 15, 2012.

The Mallam Market, one of the very patronised markets in Accra, has for years been noted for moderately priced food items and indeed served residents in Accra who live both in close proximity and those from afar.
