Mozambique declares two-day mourning after 28 killed in accident

The Mozambican government on Tuesday declared two days of mourning following an accident that killed 28 people Saturday.

A meeting of the Council of Ministers, which focused on the incident and the high number of accidents on the country's roads, agreed that the mourning starts on Wednesday.

On Saturday afternoon, a truck carrying six people and an overloaded minibus carrying 25 people collided in Mirongone village in Zambezia province, 1,600 km north of the capital Maputo.

Eyewitnesses said that the lorry veered off its lane and crashed into the minibus.

24 people who were in the minibus and four in the lorry died.

Police took the wounded to a nearby hospital.
