Tourists killed in Greece bus crash

Four Russian tourists have died and 30 others were injured when a bus taking them to the airport overturned, Greek police said.

The bus skidded off the road in the rain before dawn, 9.5 miles outside the northern city of Thessaloniki.

The tourists were being transported from a nearby resort to Thessaloniki airport, from where they were due to return to Russia on a charter flight to St Petersburg.

Seventeen of the passengers on the bus were unharmed, while the driver was also among the injured.
