The city is in a three-day mourning.
The catastrophe in the “Bakajik” region happened at about 9:15 last Thursday.
A bus “Chavdar” that carried passangers to the monastery “St. Alexander Nevski” for the traditional celebrations of the Day of St. Spas lost control, probably due to malfunctions. The bus crashed into the people on the sidewalk and nearby stalls. The casualties are mostly adults, but also include a 16 year old boy.
