At least 42 killed in French Bus Crash

Forty-two mostly elderly people died when a bus and a truck collided head-on and caught fire near Bordeaux early on Friday, officials said, in France's worst road crash in decades.

Another five people were injured in the collision on a country road near Puisseguin in the Gironde region about 60km (35 miles) east of Bordeaux, an official from the local prefect's office said.
