Easter holiday bus crash in eastern Zimbabwe kills 35


A bus carrying worshipers on their way to an Easter pilgrimage in Zimbabwe’s mountainous east plunged into a gorge, killing 35 people in the early hours of Friday

The bus carried members of the Zion Christian Church, a local denomination known for organizing regular pilgrimages attended by thousands of people.

Bus accidents are common in the southern African country, where some drivers overload their vehicles and exceed the speed limit. Zimbabwe’s poor road conditions have also been blamed for contributing to the crashes.
