Another person has died in the aftermath of one of the most fatal bus accidents in the history of Macedonia, increasing the death toll to 15.

The tragedy happened when a Durmo company bus, taking 50 passengers from Skopje to Gostivar, slid off the highway near the Karpalak half-way point, turned upside down and landed in a ditch. Seven people died instantly, and eight more after being taken to several clinics in Skopje.

About 40 injured passengers were taken to Skopje hospitals, and seven of them are in critical condition.
