At least 20 killed, including seven children, in Uganda bus crash | World News


Twenty people have died after a bus crashed in western Uganda, police have said.

At least seven of the victims are children, officers added.

The vehicle careered into a tea estate beside a motorway as it travelled from the city of Fort Portal to the capital, Kampala.

Photographs posted on social media showed emergency services trying to extract survivors from the mangled wreckage.

It is one of the deadliest accidents in the African country in recent years.

Road accidents are not uncommon in Uganda, where roads are often narrow and covered in potholes.
