57 DEAD AFTER BUS CRASHES INTO OIL TANKER IN PAKISTAN

KARACHI, Pakistan - At least 57 people, including women and children, have been killed after their bus crashed into an oil tanker, igniting a fierce blaze in southern Pakistan early on Sunday, officials said. 
"We have received more than 57 dead bodies but the death toll may rise as most of them are completely burnt and stuck to each other," doctor Semi Jamali at Karachi's Jinnah hospital told AFP. 
The oil tanker was apparently speeding in the wrong direction down a road when it crashed into a passenger bus, police said. 
"The bus carrying some 50 passengers hit the oil tanker, which according to initial reports was coming in a wrong direction," senior police official Rao Muhammad Anwaar told AFP. "The bus caught fire after the accident."
The bus was en route to the town of Shikarpur from the southern port city of Karachi when the collision occurred along a stretch of dilapidated road. Some of the victims were charred beyond recognition, Mr Anwaar added.
A few passengers escaped unhurt after they jumped out of the bus windows, another police official Muhammad Jan said.
