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.
