Share Print Font: +-TIRANA, Albania — Fourteen people died and 12 others were injured, many of them seriously, Saturday at about 1700 local time (1600 GMT) when a bus fell off a cliff 140 kilometers (87 miles) north of the capital, Tirana, Albanian authorities said.

Police official Hysni Burgaj said a sudden downpour caused the accident.

Authorities still did not know the total number of bus passengers late Saturday.

The bus fell 30 to 40 meters (yards) off a cliff in Dom Gjegjan village, in the district of Puka, police said. The injured were brought to hospitals in the Albanian capital, Tirana, and the northern city of Shkodra.

President Bamir Topi and Prime Minister Sali Berisha visited the injured at the Tirana hospital and promised urgent assistance.

The government has declared Sunday a day of national mourning, with flags flying at half-mast.

In further note Johnny .....hasnt been seen or heard from since this accident. Apparently he was on the bus -as were all the major players of Organized Crime in Albanias Mafia. They were on there way to a top secret albanian mafia meeting to discuss a major chicken robbery were up to 200 chickens and 50 goats were said to be split up amongst all the major heads of the mafia "families".

I read that in the paper today and my first thought was Johnny would probably deny that any Albanian could be killed by a simple bus crash.
