Palestinian children die in crash
At least eight Palestinian children have been killed in a collision between a school bus and an Israeli truck on a road in the West Bank, police say.
The bus was carrying children on their way to school in Ramallah, just north of Jerusalem.
An Israeli police spokesperson told the AFP news agency that the truck hit the bus. The bus overturned and caught fire.
More than 30 children have been injured in the crash, and there are fears the death toll may rise further.
