Road accident kills 17 in southeastern Bangladesh
The bus on its way from Thancchi to Bandarban plunged into the canyon after the driver lost control over the wheels while it was coming downwards from a slope.
"According to initial reports we received, 17 people were killed and many injured…. apparently it was caused by dense fog," chairman of the Thanchhi sub-district Khamlai Murong told PTI.
The paramilitary Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) troops have launched the rescue campaign, official said.
