Lightning strike kills 7 at nursery school party in South Africa

A lightning strike killed seven people - including a 4-year-old child - at a nursery school Christmas party in South Africa, a government spokeswoman said Saturday.

Forty others were injured when the lightning struck in KwaZulu-Natal Friday afternoon, said Mashu Cele, a spokeswoman for the province's social development department.
