[Guinean news] Bridge collapse kills 65

65 Guineans have reportedly died in an accident near the southeastern city of Guéckédou. A lorry ('un gros camion' for those you who've been there) was so overloaded with people and goods on their way to the market that it apparently caused a bridge to collapse. Police also blamed reckless driving and poor road conditions.

After my first trip away from my village, right in front of our vehicle, maybe 100 yards, we saw a gros camion tip over and roll over into a ditch. I vowed I would never travel in a gros camion, unless I was in life-threatening danger. They are death traps.
