An Israeli citizen was killed on Friday when a tourist bus overturned in Cuba. Eight other Israelis were injured in the crash. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has stated that they are being treated in a local hospital.

The wounded Israelis, who were travelling as a group, were on their way back from Morón when the bus driver lost control of his vehicle in the city of Ciego de Avila, apparently due to the wet road. The tour guides on the bus, as well as the driver himself, were also injured.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said they are being assisted by the Canadian embassy in Cuba, since Israel doesn't have diplomatic relations with Cuba.
