Kerem Al, governor for Osmaniye province, said 26 others were injured in the accident which happened in southern Osmaniye province as the bus was returning from a school trip to a national park and museum.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said the bus collided with a car, lost control and veered into the irrigation canal.

At least one of the injured passengers was in a serious condition.

The children were from a school in Hatay province which borders Syria and lies just south of Osmaniye.
