YAOUNDE - An official says at least 45 people have died after a bus overturned in the West African nation of Cameroon during an overnight journey. District official Mamadou Balla says the driver was apparently dozing while the bus was travelling at top speed. The vehicle, which was carrying about 60 passengers, overturned at a sharp turn in the road. Villagers came upon the twisted wreck on Sunday. Road accidents are common in Cameroon, where long journeys are typically undertaken at night with tired drivers on poorly maintained roads. (AP)
