TEHRAN, Apr 26 (Reuters) A bus plunged 160 metres off a winding mountain road in southern Iran today, killing 13 passengers and injuring 22, state television quoted police as saying.

Police blamed a slippery road and the speed of the bus for the crash near the town of Ardal 560 kilometres south of Tehran.

Iran has an appalling road safety record with an average of one fatality every 20 minutes.
