Nineteen people were killed and 21 others injured when a passenger bus lost control and plunged off a cliff in the central Philippines, police said Wednesday (Mar 21).

The bus, which was heading to the capital Manila, skidded off a mountain road on Mindoro island late Tuesday (Mar 20), said regional police spokeswoman.

Rescue workers were pulling the dead and injured from the vehicle, which landed at the bottom of a wooded ravine.

Road accidents are common in the Philippines, where poorly maintained buses and poorly-trained drivers form the backbone of land transport options.
