Story Text: Fourteen Albanian holiday-makers including children were killed when a bus plunged off a cliff as they were returning home.
The tragedy happened near the village of Dom Gjegjan on Saturday (July 17).
Twelve other passengers were injured including four children.
It appears a heavy downfall of rain may have weakened the road, washing some of the cliff edge away.
The bus was returning from the coastal city of Durres. It's not clear at this stage how many people were on board.
Authorities have declared the 18th of July a day of national mourning.
