At least 25 people are feared dead after a passenger bus veered off a mountain road in central Nepal.
The incident occurred as the bus lost control in the Kavrepalanchok district, plunging about 300 metres downhill. 30 people were injured in the incident and some of them have already been airlifted to the hospital.
Bhim Kanta Sharma, the deputy district chief of Kavre, told AFP news agency that a rescue operation was ongoing.
“Rescue workers are still recovering bodies but rain is making their work difficult. We cannot ascertain the final toll right now.”
