Kathmandu, At least 12 people were killed on Friday when a bus

carrying employees of a co-operative veered off a mountain road and

plunged about 150 metres downhill.

The bus with 27 people on board had left Tansen, a town in south-central Nepal, for a study tour early Friday when it crashed, said Dilli Ram Panta, a police superintendent of Palpa district.

The cause of the accident was not immediately clear, but the police officer said it had rained heavily overnight and in the morning.
