At least 37 Zambians died when their passenger bus burst into flames after a crash in the Democratic Republic of Congo, local officials said on Saturday. “Thirty-seven people died and 22 others were seriously injured in a Zambian public transport bus accident” on Friday near the Congolese town of Mokambo in southeastern DR Congo, Jean Olondo, a local civil society

leader, told AFP.

Olonde, who helped in the

rescue effort, said all the

casualties were people from

neighbouring Zambia.

After a tyre puncture, “the

bus, which was travelling at

very high speed, collided into

a termite mound” and burst

into flames, he said.
