A bus carrying tourists from a cruise ship has overturned in south-eastern Mexico, killing at least 12 people, officials say, the BBC reports.

Another 18 people were injured in the crash between Mahahual and Cafetal in Quintana Roo state.

The bus was taking 31 people, who were on a Royal Caribbean cruise, to the ancient Mayan ruin at Chaccobén.

Those on board were nationals of the US, Italy, Sweden and Brazil, a bus company statement said.

A local driver and tour guides were also said to be on the trip.

The injured were taken to four hospitals and five people were discharged, the Costa Maya company said.

Royal Caribbean said it had 27 guests on the bus and described the crash as “heartbreaking”.
