Tanzania: 42 Migrants die in truck
Some 42 migrants have been found dead in the back of a truck in Tanzania. Tanzania's Deputy Interior Minister Pereira Silima said they had come from Ethiopia and died from asphyxiation. Local officials said more than 120 people had been packed into the truck, which was headed for Malawi.
Tanzanian and Malawi have become key staging posts for people fleeing drought and conflict in Somalia and Ethiopia, and trying to reach South Africa.
Mr Silima said that according to survivor accounts, the 127 migrants had started off from Ethiopia in two trucks.
