The youths then jumped on the bus driver, grabbed and sharply turned the steering wheel of the moving bus, driving the bus full of passengers off the side of the road.

The bus driver quickly hit the brakes before the bus turned over, and passengers on the bus went flying.

A number of unarmed soldiers on the bus, jumped off the bus too and began chasing them.
