Zimbabwe bus fire kills at least 42 people

Reports have confirmed that at least 42 people died in a fire aboard a bus in Zimbabwe late last night.

The bus was travelling near Beitbridge, close to the border with South Africa, when the blaze began.

Brooklyn Buses, the company that owned the vehicle, believed that a gas cylinder, brought on board by a passenger, might have caused the fire.

The blaze burned many of the bodies beyond recognition. More than 20 survivors have been hospitalised.
