    If this was done willfully then it's lawlessness achieving new heights! Someone please remind me of how many years of culture and civilization do we continually boast of.

    Their fault. Why they did not get out from the van?

    Sorry...guess some of us were all wrong about in thinking it was arson or murder. Seems driver kept a petrol can in the van because of some fuel block issue. Amazing how stupid still are in these modern times.
