|YANGON， Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- A new bus system in Myanmar's Yangon， which was introduced on the first day on Monday， has made for a chaotic rush hour with large number of passengers being stranded on the roads.
The system， which reduces the number of bus lines from more than 300 to 70， has eased the traffic jam but caused chaos among congested passengers.
The first day of the new system saw fewer buses operating than expected， resulting in imbalance between the number of buses and passengers.
The official Global New Light of Myanmar reported that the shortage of buses and the ensuing delay prompted private buses from express bus lines and from tourist companies to voluntarily offer transportation to commuters who were crowded at bus stops.
Many other commuters used the circular trains which reported a jump in ridership.
All 300 bus lines running in Myanmar's former capital city of Yangon were abolished and replaced with 70 new bus lines starting Monday， according to the arrangement of the Yangon regional government.
The change is aimed at reducing traffic jam in the city and making the bus lines systematically formed.
The new bus lines are supervised by Yangon Region Transport Supervision Board， thus replacing the previous All Bus Line Control Committee.
At present， over 2 million people are depending on bus lines in Yangon where 6 million people are residing.
ACCRA， March 24 (Xinhua) -- Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo on Friday laid the foundation stone for the construction of a new Chancery building of the French embassy in Accra.
The new building will see the relocation of the embassy which is currently located near the seat of the Ghanaian government， Flagstaff House.
The location of the French embassy close to the Flagstaff House has raised security concerns for Ghana since its construction a decade ago.
President Akufo-Addo expressed the confidence that the edifice of the new Chancery building would be the foundation stone and continuation of the growing interest of France in Ghana's Developmental Agenda.
"I trust that those given the onerous responsibility of constructing this new building， will deliver efficient and timely work so that its opening will help to expand the already cordial relations between Ghana and France，" he said.
Ghana's relation with France was established soon after Ghana's Independence in 1957 and has since grown from strength to strength.
The French ambassador to Ghana Francois Pujolas said the building is a symbol of the confidence his country has in Ghana.
The new edifice is expected to be completed by 18 months. Enditem

Rescue and emergency services personnel carry a survivor on a stretcher during search and rescue operations in Amatrice
Hundreds of others were injured, some critically Wholesale Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys , and an unknown number were trapped under the ruins of collapsed buildings after Wednesday's pre-dawn quake.
Amid scenes of carnage, dozens of emergency services staff and volunteers were determined to attempt to pluck more survivors from the ruins.
Rescuers had pledged to work through the night in the hope of finding people alive in the mangled wreckage of homes.
Prime Minister Matteo Renzi had earlier warned that the toll would likely rise after visiting the badly hit village of Amatrice.
Hundreds of people spent a chilly night in hastily assembled tents with the risk of aftershocks making it too risky for them to return home.
Scores of buildings were reduced to dusty piles of masonry in communities close to the epicentre of the quake, which had a magnitude of between 6.0 and 6.2.
It hit a remote area straddling Umbria Wholesale Chicago Bears Jerseys , Marche and Lazio at a time of year when second-home owners and other visitors swell the numbers staying there. Many of the victims were from Rome.
The devastated area is just north of L'Aquila, the city where some 300 people died in another quake in 2009.
Most of the deaths occurred in and around the villages of Amatrice, Accumoli and Arquata del Tronto.

""I wasn't here. As soon as the quake happened, I rushed here. They managed to pull my sister's children out Wholesale Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , they're in hospital now,"" he added, wringing his hands in anguish.
Among the victims was a nine-month-old baby girl whose parents survived Wholesale Atlanta Falcons Jerseys , an 18-month-old toddler and two other young children who died with their parents in Accumoli.
Two boys aged four and seven were saved by their quick-thinking grandmother, who ushered them under a bed as soon as the shaking began, according to reports. She also survived but lost her husband.
Renzi said it was too early to consider what might have been done to prevent the disaster.
""Today is the time for tears and emotion Wholesale Arizona Cardinals Jerseys ,"" he said, vowing that his government would start reconstruction work first thing on Thursday.

It was Italy's most powerful earthquake since the 2009 disaster in L'Aquila.
""Half the village has disappeared,"" said Amatrice mayor Sergio Pirozzi Cheap Washington Redskin Jerseys , surveying a town centre that looked as if had been subjected to a bombing raid.
The tremors were strong enough to be felt 150 kilometres (90 miles) away in Rome, where authorities ordered structural tests on the Colosseum.
