Tourist bus crash in China kills 6, including 5 Germans
BEIJING (AFP) - A tourist bus burst into flames after crashing into a container truck near the Chinese capital on Monday, killing six people including five Germans, state media reported.
The official Xinhua news agency cited police in the port city of Tianjin, south-east of Beijing, as saying the accident occurred on an expressway linking the capital with the commercial hub of Shanghai.
The accident, in which 14 others were injured, comes as the country's roads are full of travellers returning to their hometowns during the week-long Golden Week holiday.
The entire bus was engulfed in flames after the crash, witnesses told Xinhua.
