NALCHIK, May 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Four people died in the Sunday accident of a bus carrying a children’s ensemble near Pyatigorsk, North Caucasian emergency situations department spokesman Kantemir Davydov told Itar-Tass.
Seventeen people are wounded, including four heavily. “These are preliminary reports. Schoolchildren are in shock; they are unable to evaluate their condition adequately,” he said.
