At least 7 killed, 18 injured in car accident in Nepal
At least seven people were killed and 18 more were injured, when a jeep fell over a cliff in the southern Nepalese district of Nawalparasi, Sputnik reported.
The Katmandu Post newspaper reported, citing local police, that the jeep hit a crowd of people, killing and injuring a number of people on Saturday evening and then fell down from some 200 meters (some 220 yards).
The rescue operation was complicated by the challenged terrain in the accident site, the newspaper added.
