CHITA, June 12. /TASS/. The death toll from the road accident with the bus carrying pilgrims in Transbaikalia rose to 13 people, press service of the Transbaikalia Metropolitanate told TASS.
"Less than an hour ago, another woman died at the intensive therapy department, and thus the death toll has risen to 13," the press service said, referring to information from the hospital.
The bus was carrying 51 pilgrims who were travelling home after taking part in a sacred procession in Varlaam’s monastery located in the Urluk settlement.
