At least 40 people are dead after a bus crashed head on with a fuel tanker in southern Pakistan.
It happened just past midnight on Sunday morning on a highway on the outskirts of Karachi. Officials say there were about 55 people on board the bus, including women and children, when it collided with the tanker.
Both vehicles immediately burst into flames. The bodies were taken to a medical center in Karachi, but officials said many were burned beyond recognition.
Road accidents are common in Pakistan where poorly maintained roads and vehicles plus reckless driving have caused at least 4500 deaths per year since 201
