Peru: At least 19 dead in bus crash

The crash happened in Canta province of Peru when travelers were returning to the capital following a national holiday. The accident left 11 women and 8 men, while no foreigners were among the victims.

Canta is a popular destination for both domestic and foreign tourists but due to its narrow roads, it has recorded more than 2,700 deaths due to road accidents in 2017.

Fatal road accidents are frequent in Peru due to speeding, poor road surfaces, a lack of signage and minimal oversight by authorities.
