Police say 14 killed, several missing in bus accident in Nepal

Police say a bus veered off a mountain road and plunged in a river in central Nepal, killing 14 passengers and leaving several more missing. Police official Ramji Dantel says the bus fell in the river just after midnight Saturday in Khare Khola, about 160 kilometers west of the capital, Katmandu. Police and soldiers are searching the river for bodies but the river is flooded with monsoon rain, making their work difficult. Another 29 people injured in the accident have been taken to a hospital.
