Tragedy in Nigeria

This story from our friend Jo.

Nigeria's roads are notoriously dangerous, but that does little to blunt the tragedy of over 100 people dying in a traffic incident.


Three buses and a truck collided Monday in central Nigeria, killing more than 100 people in the impact and the fiery explosion that followed, authorities said.

State television showed charred remains of some victims of the accident, which happened shortly after midnight Sunday about 60 miles outside the capital, Abuja.


My prayers and condolences go out to the families and friends of the victims.

Read the story.
