At least eight people have been killed and 15 seriously wounded in Guatemala after a minibus came off the edge of a road and plunged down a ravine, an emergency services official said on Wednesday.

A spokesman for fire services said the accident occurred when the vehicle was travelling in the San Pedro Necta municipality in a mountainous part of western Guatemala.

The cause of the crash could not be known immediately, reports Reuters citing the spokesman.
