Forty-five people have died in South Africa after the bus they were in plunged some 50 meters off a bridge into a ravine.

Authorities say an eight-year-old girl, the only survivor, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The bus crashed through a barrier and caught fire when it hit the ground in the north-eastern Limpopo province.

The passengers were pilgrims travelling from Botswana’s capital to an Easter service in the town of Moria.
