Harare, March 4 (IANS) At least 30 people were killed and 36 injured in a collision between two buses on Harare-Bulawayo Highway in Zimbabwe, the media reported on Friday.

One bus suffered a tyre-burst and side-swiped a Mercedes Benz Sprinter commuter omnibus along the highway on Thursday, Xinhua quoted police as saying.
