At least 31 people dead after passenger bus overturns in southern Mali

At least 31 people were killed and 10 others injured when a driver lost control of a passenger bus in southern Mali on Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

The bus carrying Malians and nationals from the West African subregion was en route to Burkina Faso when it “overturned,” said a statement posted on Mali’s Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure’s Facebook page.

Accidents involving public transport buses are a frequent occurrence in Mali. On Feb. 19, at least 15 people died and more than 46 were injured in a traffic accident between a public transport bus and a lorry in central Mali.
