At least 28 people have been killed and many others injured in a bus crash in north-west Nepal, police say, APA reports citing BBC.

The vehicle was travelling through Mugu district when it left the road and plunged down a hillside shortly after midday on Tuesday, local media report.

The cause of the crash is unclear, but some reports suggest the bus may have had an issue with its brakes failing.

Road accidents are not uncommon in Nepal, and are usually caused by bad roads or poorly maintained vehicles.

The police said an investigation was under way.
