More than 40 people are believed to have been killed in southern Zimbabwe after a bus they were travelling in burst into flames, police say.

Dozens of others were injured.

State media reported that a gas cylinder belonging to a passenger was thought to have exploded.

The Chronicle newspaper says the Brooklyn Express bus was reduced to ashes.

Pictures published on Twitter earlier this morning by Zimbabwe’s Red Cross show the remains of the bus which was completely destroyed by the flames.
