LUSAKA, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- Zambian authorities said on Tuesday that remains of deceased people who were involved in a bus accident in South Africa's Mokopane in Limpopo Province will be flown from that country.
Eleven Zambians died on Monday when the bus which was traveling from Zambia to South Africa overturned after a tyre burst while scores of others were injured.
Among the dead included eight men and three women.
Emmanuel Mwamba, Zambia's High Commissioner to South Africa said the embassy was working with the South Africa Road Fund to meet some of the costs associated with the critically injured and the deceased.
"We are encouraging families who have relatives in South Africa to help identify the deceased. For those with no one in South Africa, the bus service will fly into South Africa a family member to help with the identity of the deceased persons," he said in a statement.
The Zambian envoy urged affected families to exercise patience to enable authorities process mandatory procedures.
