At least nine people have been killed and five injured when a bus fell down a cliff in Colombia, police said.

"The bus fell into a 400-metre abyss. We are removing the injured and taking them to the city of Pamplona. Nine people are dead, two minors among them," a police official said Friday.

According to one of the survivors, the driver lost control of the vehicle apparently due to a failure of brakes.
