• Thirty die in road accidents in north India mountains


    NEW DELHI: Two deadly road accidents in India’s northern Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh killed at least 30 people and injured 24 others, police said Saturday. An overcrowded jeep fell into a gorge 1,000 feet (304 meters) deep early Saturday, killing 13 people in Kinnaur district, police said, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) east of state capital Shimla. “Thirteen people have died and one is injured. 10 of them were from one village,” Surinder Mohan, a local police officer, told Agence France-Presse of the accident. It followed a separate tragedy late Friday when a passenger minibus bus swerved off a hilly road into a gorge, killing 17 and injuring 23 in the state’s Chamba district.
