At least 20 people were killed Saturday after a cable fell on a bus and electrocuted the passengers inside, a police spokeswoman said.
Spokeswoman Rita Abbey said the death toll could rise further. An Associated Press cameraman saw more than 10 bodies at a local hospital.
The electrical cable fell during heavy rains in the provincial capital of Port Harcourt. The dead were mostly passengers but also included passers-by who were near the bus when the cable fell.
