Three buses collide outside northeastern Maiduguri city, leaving at least 37 people dead, many "burnt beyond recognition," officials say.
Out of the 16 victims, 14 were from African countries further south and two were Algerians, according to local media.
The collision resulted in a huge fire that engulfed both vehicles, killing at least 20 people on the spot and injuring six others.
The United States’ National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), is sending a mission called DART to collide with a small asteroid orbiting a larger one to see if it can knock it off its course by impact alone.
The inferno occurred near Kibuba along national route one between Kinshasa and Kikwit around 180 km from the capital Kinshasa.
The bus was travelling from Cairo when it turned over and was hit by the truck on a road in the southern province of Assiut, 320 kilometres south of Cairo.
Heavy rain causing poor visibility is said to have caused the bus to get hit by the train as it crossed over the tracks.
