30 Reportedly Dead as Bus Plunges Into River in Kenya

Over 33 people have been killed and others injured in central Kenya after a bus veered off a bridge and plunged into a river.

The authorities said 10 people survived the Sunday night accident.

The vehicle was travelling from the town of Meru to the coastal city of Mombasa when the accident happened.

Police said preliminary investigations suggest the brakes might have failed.

A search and rescue operation is under way and the death toll is expected to rise.

Images from the scene showed the mangled wreckage of the bus with the roof ripped off and personal belongings strewn all over.

The bus is said to have veered off the bridge and plunged some 40m below into the Nithi River.
