16 Moroccan royal guards die in bus crash

MARRAKECH, Morocco — Morocco’s official news agency says 16 royal guards have died in a bus crash after the vehicle drove off a road and plummeted 650 feet (200 meters).

The MAP agency reported that the accident happened early today on a road linking two cities on Morocco’s northern coast. The report said the driver lost control of the bus at a bend in the road, and the bus overturned and fell off the road.

In addition to those killed, another 42 guards were injured, including eight seriously. They were hospitalized in Al Hoceima, on the country’s north coast, about 280 miles (450 kilometers) northeast of the capital, Rabat.
