Bus falls into the gorge; 19 killed in southwest Pakistan

At least 19 people were killed and 11 others injured when a speeding passenger bus fell into a gorge in Pakistan’s restive Balochistan province on Sunday. The bus carrying more than 30 people heading to Quetta from Islamabad was plunged into an accident. Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo expressed grief over the accident.

He ordered an emergency be declared in Civil Hospital Zhob to ensure treatment for the injured. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif also expressed sorrow over the tragic accident and offered his condolences and sympathies to the bereaved families of the deceased. Last month, 22 people were killed, including nine members of a family, when a passenger van fell into a ravine near Qila Saifullah district of northern Balochistan.
