A bus plunged into a valley in central China, killing 12 people and injuring 32, Xinhua news agency said on Wednesday.

The bus tumbled into a 20-metre ravine on Tuesday in Shaoyang in Hunan province.

China's roads are the deadliest in the world. Traffic accidents killed almost 100,000 people last year, or 270 a day.

On Monday, a truck loaded with bicycle wheels collided with a mini-bus and a coach, killing 24 people and injuring at least 20.
