At least 14 people were killed and nine others injured when a crowded bus slipped off a mountain in Nepal, a government official said.
Dhading District Administration official Toran Parajuli said the vehicle was carrying passengers both inside and on the roof.
It plunged off the mountain road near Lapang Phedi village and rolled about 980ft (300m) before ending up on the banks of Ankhu River.
Mr Parajuli said rescuers have reached the accident site and a helicopter has flown from Kathmandu to try to retrieve the injured.
The bus was on a local route and carrying all Nepali nationals. Traffic crashes are mainly blamed on poorly maintained roads and vehicle in Nepal.
