At least 13 Chinese tourists were killed and dozens injured when their bus skidded off the road and plunged 30 meters

into a ravine in Laos.

The bus was carrying more than 40 Chinese nationals heading towards the tourist town of Luang Prabang when the accident occurred late on Monday, police said.

The bus driver and a guide, both Lao, suffered minor injuries.

Members of a People's Liberation Army medical team who were in Laos for a joint event with the government provided aid, the Chinese Embassy in Vientiane said.

The injured were either being treated at a hospital in Luang Prabang or resting at their hotel.
