Police: 15 die in India after bus catches fire

Police say at least 15 people have died and 25 have been injured after a bus hit an electric wire and caught fire in eastern India.
Local police official Chatranil Singh says many passengers were crowded on the bus's roof when it hit the wire Tuesday in Sitamarhi district in Bihar state, and that it is not clear if the victims were inside the bus or on the roof.
Traveling on the roof is common in India, especially during marriage season when buses are often overcrowded.
The injured victims are being treated at a local hospital.
