17 die in bus crash


A Kenyan official says a bus has plunged into the Siyapei River, and that 17 passengers died and four were seriously injured. Narok County Commission­er George Natembeya said 43 passengers survived with minor injuries after the bus ran off the Narok-Mai Mahiu road about 130km west of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. The bus was travelling from Kendu Bay in western Kenya to Nairobi. Siyapei resident Jackson Sempele says the bus driver was trying to avoid hitting a truck that had pulled out onto the highway from a quarry.
