Beijing, Jumada II 16, 1436, Apr 5, 2015, SPA -- Twenty-one people died when a bus plummeted 100
metres into a dry riverbed in south-west China, dpa cited state media as reporting
Sunday.

Three people were also injured when the bus veered off a mountain
road in Guizhou province Saturday night, the Xinhua news agency
reported.

An initial investigation suggested that the bus driver had illegally
taken a road intended only for smaller vehicles, Xinhua said.
