Agency News

Harare, Apr 16: At least 13 people were killed while seven others were injured after a lorry plunged into a group of congregants at an apostolic church shrine in Zimbabwe's Mashonaland Province, local media reported on Tuesday.

The lorry transporting maize ploughed into the congregants on Monday, when they were waiting for transport to return home after an annual Passover meeting. Six people died on the spot, while seven others died on their way to hospital. More than 40,000 people gather at the apostolic church shrine every year to commemorate the Passover. (UNI)
