Philippine Bus Crash Kills At Least 18

VOA News
12 June 2010


Police in the Philippines say a bus carrying mostly Iranian nationals plunged into a ravine Sunday, killing at least 18 people.

Officials say at least 30 passengers were also injured when the bus fell into the 30 meter ravine on the central island of Cebu. They say it appears the bus suffered from brake failure.

Police say most of the dead are Iranian medical students and doctors who were on their way to a beach resort when the accident took place.

Rescue workers are continuing to search the wreckage for victims.

Poorly maintained vehicles and roads are blamed for many deadly accidents in the Philippines.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and Reuters.
