Skopje, 23 November 2021 (MIA) – Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, who left for Sofia overnight together with Health Minister Venko Filipche and Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani, told MIA that one of the survivors has said a loud explosion was heard prior to the accident that claimed at least 45 lives at a motorway in Bulgaria.

“I am in contact with Prime Minister Stefan Yanev who has already visited the people. I talked to one of the survivors, who explained they were sleeping in the bus when a loud explosion was heard. They managed to break one of the windows and save a few people. Unfortunately, the others didn’t make it. This is a horrific tragedy since 12 of the victims are children while the others are young people aged 20-30. Most of them are Macedonian nationals but there are people from Serbia too,” PM Zaev told MIA.

According to him, they were probably coming back from an excursion but details are still not available.

“We still don’t know all the information because we are focused on the survivors. We will get the preliminary information from the Bulgarian services, find out where they were coming back from etc,” added Zaev.
