BMW catches fire in Ahmedabad; four die
Ahmedabad:  In a tragic accident in Ahemdabad, four people were burnt to death as the BMW they were travelling in, caught fire.

The four people, reportedly all mechanics of BMW, had taken a new car for a test drive when it caught fire after  ramming into a trailer.

It appears the car's central locking system failed and all four got trapped inside the car. Three hours of operation by a large team of fire officials finally managed to take out the charred remains of the four people.

The police are investigating the reason for the fire. BMW officials say that they have never heard of any BMW go up in flames like this.

Honda recalls cars

Japanese carmaker Honda has announced it is recalling over four lakh vehicles in the US due to an airbag defect.

One fatality and a number of injuries have been linked to the defect, Honda said. The carmaker had already recalled some models last November.

The recall includes some of the company's best-selling Accord and Civic models from 2001 and 2002.

The carmaker said it would contact customers and arrange for the airbag to be replaced free of charge.
