Two German tourists killed, 10 injured in Peru after bus plunges down mountainside

Two German tourists have been killed in Peru after a minibus they were traveling in plunged into a ravine. Ten other Germans were injured.

A minibus carrying tourists swerved off the road and plummeted down a mountainside in Peru, killing two German tourists, state news agency Andina reported Friday.

Twelve others, including 10 Germans, were injured in the accident near the city of Chivay.

The tourists were on their way to Colca Valley, a popular tourist site in the Andean nation.

It was the second deadly accident in the last 24 hours. On Thursday, a bus traveling from Chuquimbamba to Arequipa plunged into a river, killing seven people and injuring 23 others.

In November, four German tourists died in an accident in the Huancavelica region.
