A landslide in northern India tumbled rocks on a mountain and struck a vehicle, killing at least nine people, many believed to be tourists, and destroying a bridge.

Dramatic video showed the rocks rolling in a valley in the Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh. Reuters news agency quoted Indo-Tibetan border police as saying the vehicle was carrying 11 people. In addition to the nine killed, two others, as well as a passer-by, were injured, Reuters said, citing its news agency partner ANI.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered his condolences to the relatives of those killed.

“My sincere condolences to the families of those who lost their lives,” Modi wrote on Twitter, according to Reuters. “All arrangements are being made for the treatment of those injured in the accident.”

Reuters quoted local media as saying those killed in the vehicle were from the Indian capital, Delhi, and elsewhere in the country.
