Horrific news regarding the bus fire in #Kazakhstan.

The bus was driving from Shymkent in southern Kazakhstan near the border with Uzbekistan.


The Kazakh media reported that the death of 52 citizens was caused not by suffocation, but by burns. "Asking you to convey my deepest condolences and sympathy to the families and friends of the victims, I wish the injured a speedy recovery", the top Armenian official said in the message. Though an official report has yet to be released, the cause of the fire was most likely a short circuit. 55 passengers and two drivers were on board.

Uzbekistan's foreign ministry said embassy staff were on the way to the area.

Kazakhstan's government revealed late on January 18 that the bus was a 29-year-old German-built Setra that did not have a license to transport passengers.
