About 35 people, including women and children, were killed on Monday when two buses collided on a busy road in Ghana.

The accident, which happened in the Bono East Region near the Town of Kintampo 270 miles from the capital Accra, also left six people in critical condition.

Bono East Regional Minister Kofi Amoakohene told the BBC, 27 of the victims were burnt beyond recognition.

Police confirmed the toll and have launched an investigation into the crash.  He said the impact of the collision sparked a fire that tore through the other vehicle.
