Two transport accidents kill over 50 in Pakistan

Two transport accidents killed more than 50 people in Pakistan on Sunday morning.

A passenger bus plunged off a road and caught fire in the southwestern province of Balochistan.

Local authorities say 41 people, including passengers, are dead and that two injured were taken to hospital.

They are investigating the possibility that the bus was over-speeding at the time of the accident.

The bus departed from the southwestern city of Quetta the night before, heading for the southern city of Karachi.

Meanwhile, a boat capsized in a lake in the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, leaving at least 10 people dead and seven others injured.

The boat was reportedly carrying about 30 children from a local Islamic school when the accident occurred. They were visiting the area for a picnic.

Local firefighters and others are searching for those who remain missing.
