At least 56 people have been killed in a head-on collision between a bus and a goods lorry in southern Pakistan.
Among the dead are 21 women and 19 children, all of whom were under the age of 14.
The official also confirmed 18 passengers were injured in the accident, and warned the death toll was likely to rise.
Several of those injured are in hospital in a critical condition.
It happened near the city of Khairpur, 300 miles (450km) north of Karachi, the capital of southern Sindh province.
A senior police official said the bus went on the wrong side of the road, collided head-on with the lorry and the vehicles burst into flames.
He said the cause was most likely to have been heavy fog.
