South African emergency services say at least 20 schoolchildren have been killed in the capital Pretoria, after the minibus they were travelling in collided with a truck. Also, the internet's back in Cameroon's Anglophone-speaking region, after being cut off for three months due to protests.

The 24-year-old driver of the pickup truck that struck four children in Indiana, killing three of them, has been charged and released on bond, officials

One local school has sent an email to parents advising them that none of their students were on board the bus involved in the crash.

The coroner is at the scene and police expect the road will remain closed to traffic for several hours.
