At least 20 killed by electrocution in Nigeria

PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria – At least 20 bus passengers were killed in Nigeria on Saturday when a cable fell onto the bus and electrocuted people inside, police said.
Police confirmed 20 deaths, but spokeswoman Rita Abbey said the toll could climb further.

An Associated Press cameraman saw more than 10 bodies, some charred beyond recognition, at a local hospital in the provincial capital of Port Harcourt. Another 10 people were seen being treated for gashes and burns.

Most of the dead had been passengers aboard the bus, though some had been passing nearby when the cable came tumbling down during heavy rains that have pummeled southern Nigeria.

Police could not say exactly how many had been aboard the bus or how many had survived.
