Busses in Nepal are notoriously over-crowded
At least 24 people were killed in Nepal when a crowded bus veered off a mountain road and plunged into a river, officials say.
The accident happened in the west of the country, 400km (250 miles) west of the capital, Kathmandu.
Several passengers were injured, including the driver. At least nine passengers are still missing.
Rescuers say they may be trapped in the wreckage - still submerged in the fast-flowing river - or swept away.
Buses in Nepal often travel on poorly maintained roads which meander through mountain passes. They are usually overcrowded.
