18 flood survivors killed in Pakistan bus fire



At least 18 flood survivors, including eight children and nine women, died of severe burns in Pakistan when an air-conditioned bus they were traveling in caught fire, police officials said Thursday.

The incident occurred near the Nooribad police station in Pakistan’s Sindh province on Wednesday night.

The bus with 80 flood-affected people on board was on its way to Karachi from Khairpur Nathan Shah in Dadu district, according to Geo.tv.

Deputy Commissioner Jamshoro confirmed that the death toll had risen to 18, including eight children and nine women, according to the report.

“The fire may have been caused by a short circuit in the air conditioning,” citing police officials.
