At least 14 children died after a school bus fell into a canal in the Indian city of Khammam, the website of the local NDTV channel reports. 18 children have been taken to hospital.

According to eye witness reports, the bus with 40 LV Reddy students veered off into the canal when the bus driver tried to avoid a head-on collision with a cyclist.

Last Wednesday, a school bus with Belgian school children crashed in Switzerland, killing 28 people, including 22 children, and injuring 24.

On Saturday, 16 teenagers were wounded in a road accident in Poland.
