GUATEMALA CITY – At least 19 people were killed in Guatemala after the bus they were traveling in plunged down a 200-meter (660 feet) ravine in the west of the country on Monday, emergency services said.

Carlos Santizo, a spokesman for local firefighters, said the bus was going too fast when it went off the edge of the road near the town of Nahuala, some 160 km (99 miles) west of Guatemala City.

Between 20 and 25 people were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, said hospital spokesman Guillermo Ordonez.
