BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese state media say 28 people have been killed after a double-decker sleeper bus collided with a methane-laden tanker in north China.

The official Xinhua News Agency says the vehicles burst into flames after colliding on a highway near the city of Yan'an in Shaanxi province early Sunday morning.

Xinhua says 28 bodies were recovered from the wreckage and three injured people have been taken to hospital.

The report says the death toll could rise because it is unclear how many people were on the bus at the time of the crash.
