Sixteen dead, many Hungarian teenagers, in Italy bus accident - police
Sixteen people were killed and about 40 were injured when a bus carrying Hungarian students burst into flames on a highway in northern Italy, police and the fire service said on Saturday. The number of victims could rise to 18, "but certainly no more than that", the Hungarian consul in Italy Judit Timaffy told reporters in the city of Verona. The bus went off the road near a highway exit close to Verona overnight. The local highway police chief said it was carrying mostly teenage students, teachers and parents.
