Twenty-three people have been killed in the Mozambican capital Maputo, after a car crashed into a crowd attending a carnival.
Officials say the driver, who they believe was drunk, lost control of the vehicle as he attempted to speed through a traffic police checkpoint.
More than 30 people were injured. One eyewitness said the car hit a road barrier at high speed, overturned, and then ploughed into people gathered by the roadside.
Police say the driver and a passenger are among the dead.
President Filipe Nyusi expressed his condolences to the bereaved families.
