COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A spokesman for a Danish travel agency says that a 15-year-old Swede and a 68-year-old woman from Denmark have been killed when the bus they were traveling in crashed in the southern Turkish resort city of Alanya.

Torben Andersen, spokesman for the Danish Spies travel agency, says a group of 27 Scandinavians — 11 Swedes, 10 Norwegians and six Danes — were on their way back from an excursion to nearby mountains Friday when the bus tilted in a curve.

Andersen says the other tourists sustained minor injuries and some were on their way back home.

He said Saturday that the cause of the crash was unknown and that Turkish police were investigating.
