6 foreigners among dead in horrific Genting bus crash
KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - At least six foreigners were among 37 people killed when a bus crashed in Malaysia's worst-ever road accident, officials confirmed on Thursday as reports said the vehicle was overloaded and had a history of citations.
The private bus had 53 aboard when it veered off a busy and treacherous mountain road on Wednesday, tumbling into a deep gully and scattering dead and injured on a mountainside.
According to the Health Ministry and police, the dead include 14 Malaysians, two Indians, a Korean, a Nepalese, and two Bangladeshis. One of the Bangladeshis also held a Canadian passport.
Health ministry official Jeya Indran Sinnadurai told reporters the rest were yet to be identified.
