45 killed in Cameroon bus accident

At least 45 people have been killed after a bus overturned in Cameroon during an overnight journey.

District official Mamadou Balla says the driver was apparently dozing while the bus was travelling at top speed. The vehicle, which was carrying about 60 passengers, overturned at a sharp turn in the road.

The bus was travelling to the capital of Yaounde when it crashed in Etoundou village, about 80 miles north-west of the capital.
