Rescue teams in Saudi Arabia have been searching for six students, missing after their bus plunged into a flooded river in the mountainous south of the country.

The Saudi newspaper Al-Yaom said sixteen women students died in the accident in Jizan province close to the Yemeni border and the only survivor, the bus driver, was in hospital.
