At least 32 people were killed in Mexico on Sunday after the bus they were travelling in turned over on a wet road in the south-western state of Guerrero, a Red Cross official said.
At least seven people were injured and believed to be in a serious condition, the official said. "In the area where it happened it's raining very hard," he added.
The official said most of the people inside the passenger bus were wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the logo of Mexico's Labour Party (PT), a small grouping in Congress supporting leftist presidential hopeful Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
Other emergency crews were dispatched to where the accident took place about 2-1/2 hours drive southwest of Mexico City. Guerrero state police department had no immediate comment. Mexico holds a presidential election on July 1. Bus crashes and other road accidents are common on Mexico's main roads, causing hundreds of deaths a year.
