Twenty people died when a bus plunged off a bridge in southern Mexico and fell into a deep gorge, officials said Sunday.

The head of the civil defense office in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz said the accident killed 20 of the 45 people on board. Yolanda Gutierrez said the bus was apparently carrying members of a soccer team when it skidded off the Atoyac River bridge near the city of Cordoba.
