Peruvian bus tragedy

Twenty passengers were killed and ten others injured after the bus on which they were travelling caught fire as it was about to leave a terminus in the Peruvian capital Lima.

Reports said the fire which quickly reduced the vessel to just a skeleton started with an electrical fault and witnesses said that while some passengers died in their seats others were asphyxiated  as they tried to use the bus’ stairs to escape.
