A tourist bus, carrying mostly Iranian postgraduate interns from Gullas College and Cebu Doctors University, plunged into a ravine in the Philippines on Sunday morning, killing 21 people and injuring about 30 others.
The bus careened off the cliff and into a ravine 30 feet (nine meters) deep in the central island of Cebu, police said.
Only two Filipinos were aboard the bus, including the driver who was among the fatalities, AFP reported.
The tourists were on their way to Balamban for a one-day educational trip when the vehicle lost its brakes, according to philstar.com.
A number of the survivors remained in critical condition, provincial police chief Erson Digal said.
