December 8, 2018

SRINAGAR, India (AP) — Officials in Indian-controlled Kashmir say at least 12 people were killed and 18 others injured after a bus fell into a rocky gorge along a mountainous road.

Civil administrator Rahul Yadav says the bus plunged off a Himalayan mountain road as its driver negotiated a curve near southern Poonch town and fell into 60-meter-deep (200-foot-deep) rocky gorge on Saturday.

Yadav says the bus was ripped into several parts after hitting the rocks.

The injured were hospitalized, including at least five in critical condition.
