From AP:

A bus overturned in a mountainous region of China’s west, killing 25 students and their parents, state media said Wednesday.

The bus was traveling on a remote highway in the restive western province of Xinjiang, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. It was about 730 miles from the regional capital of Urumqi when it flipped over.

Most of the dead were students on their way to have health exams necessary for admission to high schools in China’s more developed east, Xinhua said.
