Deadly Bus Crash In Pakistan

At least 23 people have been killed in a bus crash in Pakistan's eastern province of Punjab.

Police officer Abdul Hameed said the bus carrying about 65 people swerved off the road and flipped over in the suburbs of Sheikhupura town as it traveled from Lahore to Faisalabad on March 23.

More than 30 people suffered injuries and officials feared the death toll could rise.

Some victims told television reporters that speeding and negligent behaviour caused the driver to lose control of the bus.
