Tourists die in bus plunge

A bus carrying Dutch tourists has crashed in southern Portugal, killing three of them and injuring 30 others and the Portuguese bus driver.

The bus went off a road on Wednesday night and rolled over into a gully. It was carrying 33 Dutch tourists who had arrived at Faro airport in the Algarve region.

Authorities said they have spoken with the driver, but a police official declined to speculate on the possible cause of the crash, which is under investigation.
