A bus in India has plunged into a river, killing at least 33 people.
The vehicle, which was reportedly being driven by a 16-year-old, veered off a bridge in Rajasthan, in the west of the country.
The speeding bus was trying to overtake another vehicle when it rammed through the bridge railing at around 7am, according to the police.
It fell 65ft into the Banas river.
Emergency services took seven injured passengers in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan state, 235 miles (375km) south of New Delhi.
Officials have recovered at least 33 bodies from the river and all on board the bus have been accounted for.
The victims, who were from various Indian states, were on their way to a nearby Ramdevji Hindu temple in Lalsot, a town in Rajasthan state, for pilgrimage.
The bus had picked up passengers from the Sawai Madhopur railroad station.
