At least 20 people have died in Pakistan after a crammed bus, which was returning from a Muslim festival, veered off the road into a ditch in the southwestern province of Balochistan. Officials say more than 40 were injured.
In the early hours of Friday morning, the bus packed full of pilgrims veered off the road near the town of Karkh in the Pakistani province. “We have received 20 bodies and over 40 injured in Khuzdar district hospital,” Dr. Manzoor Zahir told Reuters, adding that 10 of the injured were in a critical condition.
In images shared online, the battered bus can be seen on its side near a small body of water. Personal belongings can be seen strewn around it.
