Beijing: At least 11 people were killed when their tourist bus plunged into a gorge in southwestern China, state media reported on Saturday.

The official Xinhua news agency said the accident happened in Sichuan province, but gave no further details.

China's roads are among the most dangerous in the world, with traffic laws widely flouted.

Almost 70,000 people died in road accidents in 2009, or around 190 fatalities per day, according to police statistics.
