Pair of bus accidents kill at least 26 in Peru
A pair of bus crashes in Peru on Sunday (May 15) and Monday (May 16) has left at least 26 people dead.
On Monday, a bus fell into a ravine, leaving at least 16 dead.
Over the weekend, in the northern region of Cajamarca, the passing of a third vehicle past two buses near Lima caused confusion on the road, resulting in a crash that left at least 10 dead, according to media reports.
Bus accidents are common in Peru, where vehicle and highway maintenance is poor and roads snake along precarious mountains.
