Vietnam bus crash 2

At least 34 killed and dozens injured when a passenger bus plunged into a river in Vietnam's Central Highlands at night , state-run newspapers reported today.

The bus was travelling from Buon Ma Thuot city in the central highlands to southern Ho Chi Minh City when it went off the bridge between Daklak and Dak Nong provinces last night some 350 km northeast of Ho Chi Minh City.

Front of the bus was badly damaged and submerged in the water making the rescue efforts hard to proceed.

Vietnamese websites showed photographs of people pulling wreckage of the bus from the river and police placing bodies on a mattress.
