"We cannot even begin to understand what the families of the victims are going through right now."

March 21, 2016 | Bern, Switzerland. | A. Mazza, C. Cozzi, EUD Public Relations Dep.

At least 13 people have been killed after a bus carrying foreign students crashed on a Spanish motorway between the cities of Barcelona and Valencia.

Most of the 57 people on board the bus were students on the Erasmus programme who were returning to Barcelona after a trip to a fireworks festival. The accident occurred near Freginals, 150km (93 miles) south of Barcelona.

All of those who died were female, officials say. Seven of them were italian citizens, so the spanish police.

"Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that we feel for the passing of these young girls", so the EUD Public Relations Department.

"We cannot even begin to understand what the families of the victims are going through right now. May our prayers, sympathy and heartfelt condolences bring comfort to all those who lost their beloved ones. May God embrace them in comfort during this difficult time.

With a heavy heart, we pray that God will grant them the strength needed to get through this terrible moment in their life."
