A Russian plane is flying the bodies of victims killed in a bus accident in near Eilat back home.
Two dozen Russian tour operators were killed when their bus overturned and rolled into a ravine on Tuesday. Dozens more were wounded in one of the worst accidents in Israel's history.
Coffins draped in Russian flags were loaded into a cargo plane Thursday at Ben Gurion International Airport. The coffins were brought to the airport in a convoy of ambulances.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Tuesday a special team was investigating the accident. He said initial reports indicate human error was to blame, but police need to gather more evidence and testimony.
