At least 40 people died and another 4 were injured this Sunday when a bus fell into a ravine and later caught fire in the province of Balochistan, in southern Pakistan.
It is the worst accident of this type suffered by the country in almost a decade.
According to authorities, the bus crashed into a guardrail after taking a sharp turn, and fell facedown into a 15-meter ravine. In the vehicle were on board 44 passengers of which only four survived.
