Bus smash claims 47

The Cairns Post - - WORLD -

FORTY-SEVEN peo­ple were killed when two buses col­lided be­tween the Zim­bab­wean cap­i­tal Harare and the eastern town of Rusape, po­lice said.

“We con­firm 47 peo­ple have died in a road traf­fic ac­ci­dent at the 166km peg along the Harare-Mutare high­way,” a po­lice spokesman said.

On Twit­ter, the state-run Her­ald news­pa­per said pic­tures from the scene were too graphic to post.

The pa­per said the morgue at the lo­cal pub­lic hos­pi­tal in Rusape had run out of space and sought help from a pri­vate fu­neral par­lour.
