Sad! School Bus Swept Away In Jordan Flood Killing MANY PUPILS

At least 17 people have been killed in flash floods near the Dead Sea in Jordan, most of them in a bus that was swept away.

The bus was carrying 37 pupils and seven members of staff to the Zara Maeen hot springs area when it was washed away, officials said.

A huge rescue operation has been launched and Israel said it had sent helicopters at Jordan's request.

So far 34 people have been rescued from the area.


Some of them are said to be in a serious condition.

The dead and injured also included members of families picnicking at the popular tourist spot.
