A bus carrying teenage schoolboys has crashed and caught fire in northern Italy, killing at least 16 people.
Emergency officials said the bus, carrying pupils from Hungary, hit a pylon as it left the A4 motorway near Verona.
Italy's national fire service says another 39 people were injured.
The bus was returning to Budapest from France, where the pupils had been on a mountain holiday.
Italian news agency Ansa said a number of the pupils, who were mainly boys aged between 14 and 18, were thrown out of the vehicle when it collided with the pylon.
Others were trapped inside the bus when it caught fire, Ansa reported. Ten of those in hospital are seriously hurt, it said.
Ansa quoted Judit Timaffy, Hungary's consul-general in Milan, as saying a number of the pupils were saved by a sports teacher, who returned to the middle of the fire to drag them out. The teacher suffered burns as a result, she said.
The death toll is not expected to increase, the fire service added.
