At least 14 people died after a bus carrying pilgrims veered off a highway and rolled down a steep slope in central Nepal yesterday, officials said, the latest deadly traffic accident in the Himalayan nation. Police said the bus carrying 32 passengers plunged 70 metres onto a lower stretch of the winding road in Sindhupalchowk district. Some 18 passengers who were injured were taken to hospital. The cause of the accident was not yet known, but police said reckless driving down the steep and winding road could have been a key factor.
