Britons hurt in Cuba bus crash

Sixteen people, mostly thought to be Europeans, were injured in the crash

Sixteen passengers, including two Britons, have been injured in a bus crash in Cuba.

Most of the injured were from Europe, according to the state-run newspaper Cinco de Septiembre.

The government-operated vehicle ran off the road and turned over between Trinidad and Varadero, two principal tourist destinations, on Thursday evening.

Nineteen people were on board. The injured were listed as two Britons, two Czechs, four Dutch, one Filipino, one Irish and six Russians.

Cinco de Septiembre said three of the tourists are considered to be in serious condition, but none are in immediate danger of dying.

Two underwent surgery and are in intensive care.
