A bus carrying Finnish tourists crashed near Spain's southern coastal resort town of Benalmadena on Saturday, leaving eight passengers dead, including a 7-year-old girl, Spanish police said. Another 16 people on the bus were injured, some seriously, when it collided with another vehicle and overturned on the AP-7 coastal highway, a police spokeswoman said. All of the bus passengers were from Finland. Police arrested the driver of the other vehicle after he failed a blood alcohol test, the spokeswoman said, without giving her name in line with police policy.
