At least 25 persons were killed on Tuesday when the bus in which they were travelling veered off an icy mountainous road and plunged into a valley in the southwestern Chinese province of Guizhou.

Thirteen passengers were injured and two were in a critical condition, doctors said.

The bus with 38 people on board was moving on a road covered with thick layer of snow, official Xinhua news agency said. The region has been experiencing unususally heavy snowfall in the past few days.

The worst-ever snowfall in decades battering several regions across China has claimed 24 lives so far and affected 77.86 million people.
