MONTEFORTE IRPINO, Italy - Thirty-eight people were killed and 10 injured when a bus plunged off a viaduct in southern Italy in one of the country's worst road accidents.

Initial reports suggested that the coach was traveling at speed and had hit four or five cars before crashing over the roadside barriers on a stretch of road near Monteforte Irpino, east of Naples, on Sunday night.

Many children were among the 50 people on board.
