Scammers revive clickbait hoax using 2019 image of bus crash in Ethiopia

An image of a crashed public transport bus has been shared on Facebook in Ethiopia with a claim that the accident happened recently in the country’s capital Addis Ababa, with 68 passengers on board. This is false: AFP Fact Check traced the photo to reports of a 2019 collision in which six people died. The false claim is part of a clickbait ploy used in online scams in Ethiopia to attract more followers.
