Bus Crash in Western Nepal Kills 36

Police in Nepal say a bus crash west of the capital, Kathmandu has killed at least 36 people.

They say at least 30 other people suffered injuries when the overloaded bus veered off a mountain road Saturday and plunged into a ravine.

Road accidents are common in the Himalayan nation due to poorly maintained roads.
