Marrakesh - A French woman died and 30 other French tourists were injured when their Moroccan coach crashed in the southern city of Marrakesh, local authorities said.

Seven seriously injured people were admitted into a hospital while the others, part of a group of 37 French tourists, returned to their hotel after treatment.

A bus collided late on Thursday with the tourist coach near Marrakesh airport, where the French group had arrived from Paris. The 30 Moroccan bus passengers escaped unscathed.
