At least 11 people were killed on Sunday, September 8th in Morocco after their bus was overturned by a flood in the kingdom's southeast, authorities said.
Twenty-seven passengers, including several injured, have been evacuated from the bus after it was flipped over on a bridge by "flood waters" in El Khank, local officials said in a statement, adding that they had been hospitalised in the city of Errachidia.
Search operations were ongoing, officials said.
Violent storms have lashed Morocco this summer. At the end of August, a flood surged through a football pitch, killing eight people in the southern region of Taroudant. Also in July, 15 people were killed in a landslide due to flash floods on a road south of Marrakesh.
In 2014, floods killed around 50 people and caused considerable damage, according to AFP.
