14017781_10208760897553412_1336959449_nAt least 33 people were killed Monday (15) when a passenger bus skidded off the road and plunged down a hill in Nepal’s Kavrepalanchok district, authorities said.

Thirty-eight injured passengers were airlifted to Kathmandu, 70 kilometers (44 miles) away, by an army team.

Twenty-seven bodies have been identified, and search operations have ended because rescuers think all the victims have been found, authorities said.

The bus fell more than 300 meters (about 985 feet) down the hill.
