A double-decker bus carrying Thai tourists overturned on a Malaysian highway on Monday, killing 28 people on their way back from a hill resort in the country's worst road accident in years.
The tourists were heading to Kuala Lumpur after a weekend trip to the popular Cameron Highlands in central Malaysia when their bus spun out of control and crashed into a protective barrier, a district police official said.
The bus then flipped over and landed beside a rocky slope, he said.
Photographs of the site showed the wrecked bus in a shallow ditch, with its tyres and passengers' belongings scattered around. Bodies covered with black sheets were placed beside the road.
