Indian bus falls into river, 18 killed

MUMBAI (Reuters) - At least 18 people were killed when an
overcrowded bus plunged into a river near India's commercial
hub of Mumbai on Tuesday, police said.

The bus, carrying about 60 people, veered off a bridge
after the driver lost control. "Eighteen bodies have been
recovered. Some people have been rescued," Archana Tyagi, a
senior police officer, told Reuters.

Rescue workers were looking for other passengers.
