A bus overturned on a road in South Africa's Eastern Cape province, killing 11 people including one child, road safety organisation Arrive Alive said Wednesday.

The group said the vehicle's front right tyre burst late Tuesday near the southeastern town of Aberdeen, causing the driver to lose control, the Sapa news agency reported.

South African roads are among the most dangerous in the world, with some 13,000 people killed every year -- more than 35 a day.
