Bus carrying American teenage soccer players overturns outside Paris
PARIS - A bus carrying American teenage soccer players overturned in a ditch east of Paris on Sunday, killing at least one person and seriously injuring three others, officials said.

The roads were wet from overnight rain, but authorities in the Seine-et-Marne region said it was not immediately clear why the tour bus, carrying about 34 people - including two drivers - overturned near Mitry-Mory, east of Paris.

A 16-year-old boy, who was not identified, was killed and three young teens were seriously injured. Eight other people were lightly injured, and many others were treated for shock.

Hospital officials U.S. diplomats said they believed the young people were from North Carolina, but that could not be immediately confirmed.
