Over 50 dead in bus crash


More than fifty people have died in a bus crash in Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir.

The accident happened when the bus swerved on a mountain road and fell into a gorge in the district of Kathua.

Several other people were seriously injured in the crash, which happened late on Saturday.

Officials said most of the passengers were returning home for Diwali.
