Pilgrims die in Nepal bus crash


There are fears that the death toll from a bus crash in Nepal could rise sharply after many people were left unaccounted for.

At least 39 people died when a minibus crashed into a canal near the town of Parasi.

The bus was taking the pilgrims, mostly from the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, to the Hindu pilgrimage site of Triveni close to the Indian border, as Jonathan Josephs reports.
