At least 42 people have been confirmed dead in a recent fire outbreak on a moving bus in Zimbabwe.

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

The company that owned the vehicle, Brooklyn Buses, said it believed that a gas canister brought on board by a passenger may have caused the incident.

Many of the bodies were burnt beyond recognition, and more than 20 survivors have been taken to hospital.

The driver, who survived the fire, said that he pulled over to the side of the road after detecting a “strange smell”. When he turned on the lights to investigate, the bus burst into flames.

Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa said he was “devastated” to hear of the incident, which comes a week after 47 people were killed in a bus collision in the east of the country.
