BEIJING, Mar 28 (Reuters) A bus today plunged into a deep valley in southwest China, killing 25 people and injuring four, Xinhua news agency said.

The bus carrying 29 people tumbled into a valley more than 100 metres deep in Laodian, a town in the province of Yunnan, Xinhua said, quoting a local official.

One of the injured was in a critical condition, it said.

China's roads are the deadliest in the world. Traffic accidents killed almost 100,000 people last year, or 270 a day.
