MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A bus carrying locals rammed into a tourist bus with Australians returning from a trip to the Ekasup Cultural Village, the Vanuatu Daily Post said.
According to the outlet, all three casualties are locals and most of those wounded are Australian nationals. Many received serious injuries, with one woman fighting for her life.
P&O Cruises Australia, a cruise line that brought Australians to the island, cited a statement from Vanuatu’s government where it vowed to toughen road rules to ensure safety of tourists. Tourism is a key industry in the South Pacific island nation.
