34 feared dead as bus falls into river in Pakistan

Police say as many as 34 passengers are feared dead after their bus fell into a river in northern Pakistan.
Police official Mohammed Nasir says the bus ran off a narrow mountainous road Thursday near the scenic tourist destination of Gilgit.
He said rescue teams had been sent to the area, but so far no bodies have been recovered from the fast-flowing Indus river.
Such accidents are common in Pakistan, where roads are often poorly maintained and drivers regularly disregard traffic rules.
