Almaty: A bus fire in northwestern Kazakhstan killed 52 Uzbek citizens on a route used by migrant workers heading to Russian Federation, the Kazakh Interior Ministry said on Thursday.

The blaze broke out on board a bus near the city of Aktobe, and quickly engulfed the vehicle, which was travelling from Samara in Russian Federation to the town of Shymkent in southern Kazakhstan.

Video footage also showed it positioned diagonally across a two-lane road in the middle of a snow-covered steppe, in flames and emitting heavy black smoke. A photograph taken later showed the vehicle completely charred. These buses are still widely used in ex-Soviet nations, even though they are often decades old.
