Twelve Americans on a B'nai B'rith trip were killed in a bus accident in northern Chile. The victims were returning to a cruise ship after visiting Lauca National Park in Santiago Wednesday when their bus swerved off the highway and plunged 300 feet down a mountainside, US and Chilean officials said. A spokesman for Celebrity Cruises said the passengers were part of a B'nai B'rith trip on a South American cruise that left from Fort Lauderdale.
