'10 killed' in Argentina bus crash

A bus travelling from Bolivia has run off a road into a canyon in northern Argentina, killing at least 10 people, officials said.

Argentine police say the bus operated by the Potosi line left the Bolivian city of Villazon late on Friday and was on its way to Buenos Aires when the accident occurred in the province of Jujuy.

A girl aged six and another aged six months are among the dead, police said. About 40 others were injured.

The Argentine news agency Infobae said the passengers included 55 Bolivians, three Peruvians, three people from France, two Germans, a Panamanian, a Spaniard and one from Britain.
