Belgium coach crash in Switzerland tunnel kills 28

Help

At least 28 people - including 22 children - have been killed in a coach crash in a tunnel in Switzerland.

Another 24 children were injured in the crash near Sierre, in the canton of Valais, close to the border with Italy.

The coach, carrying 52 people back to Belgium, hit a wall in the tunnel head-on. Both of the coach's drivers were among those killed.

The children, from the Belgian villages of Lommel and Heverlee, were returning home after a skiing holiday.
