Bus with Russian Tourists Crashes into River in Turkey, 16 Killed

At least 16 Russian tourists were killed in the southwestern Turkish region of Antalya after a bus of mostly Russian tourists fell into a river, the Russian consul in Antalya said on Tuesday.

Local media reported that the incident occurred at 5 a.m. local time [02:00 GMT]. The bus was en route from the resort of Alanya to the town of Pamukkale when it veered off the road into the Aksu River 15 meters below, according to RIA Novosti.

Mehmet Seyman, deputy governor of the Mediterranean province of Antalya, says the tourists were traveling from the resort of Alanya to a site in central Turkey when their tour bus crashed into a river.

Seyman says at least 16 people were killed and 25 others injured in the crash Tuesday. He says rescue workers are struggling to pull out the injured and bodies from the wreckage, The Associated Press says.
