China says 32 nationals killed when bus falls off bridge in North KoreaBy Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) – Thirty-two Chinese tourists and four North Koreans died when a bus crashed off a bridge in North Korea, China’s foreign ministry said on Monday, with two Chinese nationals in critical condition.
