Indian bus crashes off bridge, kills 19

LUCKNOW, India (Reuters) - Nineteen people were killed and
25 injured on Wednesday when a bus plunged into a dry river bed
near the north Indian town of Rampur, 180 km (110 miles) east
of New Delhi.

Four of the injured were in a critical condition, a local
official said. The bus had left the hill resort of Nainital for
the capital.

On Tuesday 18 people died when their bus veered off a
bridge near India's financial capital, Mumbai.
