    Bus overturns in Iran, two reporters killed, 21 injured

    TEHRAN, IRAN (AP) — Two reporters were killed and 21 others injured on Wednesday when a bus overturned in northwestern Iran, state-run IRNA news agency said.

    IRNA said the bus was carrying 25 Iranian journalists from the capital Tehran to West Azarbaijan province to view a revitalisation project at Urmiah Lake. The vehicle overturned near the province’s Naqadeh county.

    It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the vehicle to overturn.

    IRNA quoted Head of Provincial Emergency Services Baqer Bahrami as saying two journalists died in the crash. One worked for IRNA and the other worked for the semi-official ISNA news agency.

    Bahrami identified them as Mahshid Karimi and Reihaneh Yasini. He said the injured reporters were transferred to a hospital in Naqadeh.
