41 die in Kenya bus crash
At least 41 people have been killed and a further 33 were injured in a bus crash west of the Kenyan capital Nairobi, police and Kenyan Red Cross officials say.
A police official described the scene as horrible with bodies strewn all over.
Emergency officials have struggled to get to the injured as the scene of the crash is hilly and bushy.
The bus was travelling from Nairobi to Homa Bay on the banks of Lake Victoria.
It was about halfway into the journey when it veered off the road and plunged into a valley, rolling over several times. The Red Cross said the accident occurred shortly after 02:00h on Thursday.
The cause of the incident is still unclear but preliminary police investigations suggested that the crash was possibly due to speeding and overloading.
The number of injured is also uncertain as many have been taken to various hospitals.
Kenyan roads are notoriously dangerous, with buses badly maintained and often overloaded so operators can maximise profits.
In February, 30 people died in a bus crash in the east of the country, while in July a school bus crash killed 20, most of them children.
