KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) -- Authorities say a bus carrying Hindu pilgrims has skidded off a highway in southern Nepal, killing at least 35 people.

Police official Gyan Bikram Shah says the bus was crowded and some people were even riding on the roof.

The roads were slippery because of rainfall, and the driver lost control on Sunday.

Shah said rescuers have recovered 35 bodies. No further details were available.
