At least 26 people were killed when their bus careened into a ravine in northwestern Tunisia, officials said in a new death toll on Monday.

The Ministry of Public Health said late on Sunday that 17 people were also injured in the accident in a mountainous region popular with Tunisian tourists.

The disaster was one of the most deadly accidents in a country whose poor road safety record has sparked criticism of officials.

All those on board the bus were Tunisian, the ministry said.

The bus set off from Tunis towards the picturesque northern mountain town of Ain Draham, a popular autumn destination for domestic visitors.
