China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

At least 37 peo­ple are con­firmed dead af­ter a bus tum­bled into a deep Malaysian ravine on Wed­nes­day in the coun­try’s worst-ever road ac­ci­dent, an of­fi­cial said. The toll could climb, how­ever, as 16 other pas­sen­gers were in­jured, with hos­pi­tals re­port­ing some in crit­i­cal con­di­tion. Po­lice said the bus was car­ry­ing 53 pas­sen­gers when it tum­bled down a steep 70-me­ter slope in the Gent­ing High­lands.
