At least 23 people have been killed and more than 10 others injure after a lorry fell into a ravine in northern Central African Republic, police officials say.
"The incident occurred on Saturday night…the toll could rise because some bodies are still trapped in the vehicle," AFP quoted the head of the paramilitary police at Sibut, Bienvenu Selemane, as saying on Monday.
At least 23 people including 10 men, seven women and six children have lost their lives in the accident, he added.
Meanwhile, since June more than 40 people have been killed and 30 others injured in the same site, following four car accidents.
