    BEIJING: At least 42 people died Friday when fire engulfed a bus in minutes during rush hour in the Chinese city of Xiamen, the country’s deadliest road accident in recent years. Images on Internet news portals showed a burnt-out shell was all that remained of the vehicle. Online pictures also showed survivors with bloodstained clothes sitting stunned, and thick, black plumes of smoke rising from the BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) vehicle as it burned on an elevated road. Xinhua said 33 passengers were injured in the blaze.
