At least 60 people were killed in Ghana bus collision, police has said. The crash happened at about 2:00 am (local time) in the Bono East region, some 430 kilometres (270 miles) by road north of the capital, Accra.

"The vehicles were travelling in separate directions when the collision occurred," police commander Joseph Antwi Gyawu told AFP. "At least 60 people have been confirmed dead and one of the buses caught fire with the other seriously mangled," he added.
