SAMCHEOK, South Korea, March 30 (Yonhap) -- An intercity bus plunged off a mountainous road in eastern South Korea on Tuesday, killing six and injuring 13 others, police said.

Among the six dead were the driver of the bus and a 38-year-old woman identified only by her family name Kim. Thirteen others, including a 38-year-old Russian woman, were seriously injured and taken to a nearby hospital.
