Four Greeks and a Turk died when a tourist coach fell into an eight-metre deep ditch in the area of Malkara in Turkey. The accident happened in the early hours of Friday.

The coach of the Metro travel agency had departed from Athens and was heading to Istanbul.

A number of injured passengers were transferred to a local hospital. Officials from the Greek General Consulate in Istanbul were en route to the hospital. A C-130 aircraft of the Greek air force was put on stand-by.

According to the Turkish authorities, the Greek citizens who were killed are Sofia Mariadi, Minas Solakidis, Arkadios Moisidis and Foto Mytakidi, who also had Turkish citizenship. Yassar Demirer from Turkey also lost his life. The bodies of those killed have been transferred to the Malkara state hospital.
