33 killed as bus falls off cliff in Nepal
An overcrowded bus veered off a mountain highway in Nepal on Monday, killing at least 33 people and injuring 28 others in one of the country’s deadliest bus crashes in recent years.
Injured people were brought by helicopter to Kathmandu and were being treated in two hospitals, Home Ministry official Chiranjivi Nepal said.
The bus, which was carrying local passengers to the capital, veered off Arniko highway and rolled about 500 feet. Parts of the bus, bodies and luggage were scattered on the forested slopes below the highway.
