At least 20 people died when a bus plunged over a cliff in a coastal city in southwestern Haiti, said the government.

The statement from the national palace said on Sunday that an investigation has been ordered into the accident.

Earlier in the day, Silvera Guillaume of Haiti’s Civil Protection Office said the bus was overloaded when it went off
the road in the town of Roseaux on Saturday.

He said then that 17 people had been killed, including two children.

Another 17 people were injured and were taken to a hospital in the nearby town of Jeremie, he said.
