Shock Swiss bus crash kills 28, most children


A Belgian bus struck the wall of a Swiss tunnel on the way back from a ski trip, killing 28 peopleβ€”including 22 children, most around 12 years old. Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo said it was “a tragic day for all of Belgium.” The children were returning from a week of skiing in Val d’Anniviers in the Swiss Alps. The crash is something of a mystery: the bus was nearly new and equipped with safety belts, the line has a good reputation, the drivers appear to have followed the regulations for proper rest, and the tunnel wasn’t crowded. An investigation is underway.
