Traffic police chief Colonel Beno Louhenapessy said the accident happened near Pecatu resort area of southern Bali yesterday.

He said the bus's engine apparently lost power while going up a hill and the vehicle then rolled backwards before plunging into a 49ft (15m) deep ravine.

The bus was carrying 13 Chinese tourists to Uluwatu, a popular destination which houses a sea temple.

Col Louhenapessy said two Indonesians - a tour guide and the driver - were also killed instantly. The other eight Chinese were all injured, some seriously, and were taken to hospital.
