24 Killed in Bus Crash in Cape Town

The double-decker bus was carrying around 80 people from a church group in the Cape township of Khayelitsha back from a mass prayer meeting in eastern Mpumalanga province when the driver lost control around 80 miles from The Mother City.

Rescue teams had to use a crane to lift the bus and cut away bodywork to extract victims trapped in the wreckage in the Hex River pass.
