At least 28 people, including women and children, died after a bus fell into a ravine in Pakistan's Balochistan region on Wednesday.

The mishap reportedly left 22 others injured.

Speaking to Dawn News, Basima Assistant Commissioner (AC) Ismail Mengal said the accident occurred when a tyre of the vehicle got burst, which led to the bus crashing into a hill and then plunging into a ravine.

Mengal said three women and three children were also among the deceased.

He said the bus was probably carrying 45 to 50 passengers.

It was reportedly travelling from Turbat to Quetta overnight when the accident occurred.
