Nepal bus crash kills 11: 108 hurt

An overloaded bus plunged down a hill in central Nepal, killing at least 11 and injuring 108 people, an official said yesterday. The overcrowded bus was ferrying passengers -- who had been celebrating the Hindu festival of Dashain -- from Sindhupalchowk to neighbouring Kathmandu when it fell more than 50 metres at a bend. An official said 108 people were injured but only 39 were kept for treatment. “We are investigating what caused the accident,” she said.
