At least 14 people were killed and 26 others injured on Friday when a bus careered off a mountain highway in Nepal, police said.

The bus was en route to Kathmandu from the south when it plunged 150 metres (500 feet) into a river.

"There may be more casualties as some passengers might be stuck inside the wreckage," a local police official told AFP.

Most accidents in the impoverished Himalayan country are blamed on shoddy vehicles, reckless driving and bad roads.
