Islamabad – At least 10 people including two children and as many women were killed when a bus fell down a hill just northeast of Pakistan’s capital Islamabad, officials said on Sunday.
The bus, which was carrying 20 passengers from the hill town of Murree to Rawalpindi, lost traction on a slippery road amid rainfall, rolling on its side as it fell down a slope.
“At least 10 people have been killed in the accident. Two of them are women and two children. Eight others are injured,” Mudassar Hussain, duty officer at Murree police station, told AFP.
“Rescue workers are working to recover bodies and injured at the accident site,” he added.
The popular hill resort Murree is situated around 50 kilometres (31 miles) northeast of Islamabad and attracts tourists from across the country.
