A tragic accident in the nation of Peru, where a bus carrying 35 people has veered off the side of a mountain and killed 35 of the passengers on board.

20 other passengers were reportedly seriously injured in the accident, as the bus tumbled over the Pan-American highway, crashing 80 meters down into a ravine on Wednesday in the southern region of Arequipa.

"So far the bus accident has left 35 dead and 20 injured," said Arequipa police chief General Walter Ortiz. "45 people were registered as passengers on the bus. However, this does not match the number of people killed and injured."
