Wildfires have killed at least 37 people and injured dozens more across Algeria, with the fires continuing to rage in several areas of the North African country.

The blazes on Wednesday ravaged 14 of Algeria’s provinces, most of the victims were reported in El Tarf province, near the northern Algeria-Tunisian border, where 34 people were found dead. The death toll included a family of five found in their home and eight people on a public bus whose driver was surprised by flames while traveling in a mountainnous region.

Our deepest condolences to the Government, the people,  and the families who lost loved ones. May their souls Rest in Peace! Wishing speedy recovery to the injured.
