On Tuesday, a bus in Montenegro went off the road and fell into a deep valley, causing the death of two people, including a person from Britain. Nine other people were also seriously hurt in the accident.

The local police reported that a bus belonging to Papović Bus company fell off the main road and went down a 20-meter deep cliff around 12:10 pm local time.
