A bus carrying elementary school students crashed into a truck in central Turkey Saturday, killing at least 20 people, many of them young children, authorities said. The bus was bringing elementary school students from Izmir, a city on the Turkish Aegean, to Cappadocia, a popular tourist spot in central Turkey known for its unusual geological formations. The crash occurred in the city of Aksaray, near Cappadocia. Police officials there said the number of dead was above 20, Aksaray health chief Akin Sudemen said, although media were reporting the death toll at 10. More than 20 injured were sent to regional hospitals for treatment, he said.
