Amman, Mar 17: Fourteen Palestinian pilgrims were killed and 36 others injured when their bus overturned in southern Jordan near the Saudi border, emergency services have said.

Jordan's civil defence officials yesterday said the driver of the bus lost control of the vehicle around 320 kilometres south of Amman and warned that the toll could rise, given the severity of the injuries.

The group had been heading to Saudi Arabia for the umrah pilgrimage, which along with the more important annual hajj attracts millions of Muslims from around the world.
