Waterfall in Ghana kills 20 students


Twenty students have been killed while swimming at a waterfall after trees crashed down on top of them during a storm in Ghana.

The high school pupils were in a river close to Kintampo waterfalls yesterday, a popular tourist destination in the Brong-Ahafo region of the country.
