Fourteen people, including six children, were killed when a bus carrying schoolchildren, teachers and parents crashed into a car and fell into an irrigation canal, officials said.

Kerem Al, governor for Osmaniye province, said 26 others were injured in the accident which happened in southern Osmaniye province as the bus was returning from a school trip to a national park and museum.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said the bus collided with a car, lost control and veered into the irrigation canal.

At least one of the injured passengers was in a serious condition.

The children were from a school in Hatay province which borders Syria and lies just south of Osmaniye.
