Tour bus crashes in Peru's capital, killing at least nine

AP
Peruvian officials say a double-decker tour bus went out of control and rolled over on a narrow road in the hills near capital city Lima, killing at least nine people and injuring 25.

Firefighter Cesar Suito told The Associated Press that the injured included a Canadian and a Chilean.

Peru's Ministry of Health says the Sunday night accident happened about 2 kilometres (a mile) from the presidential palace in Lima. Its statement says the local bus was driving on San Cristobal hill to give the passengers a panoramic view of the city.

The ministry says the bus appears to have been moving at excessive speed.
