The children from the Belgian villages of Lommel and Heverlee were returning home after a skiing holiday. There were 52 people on the bus.

Some of the injured were later flown to hospitals in Lausanne and Berne.

A helpline for families has been set up, and many parents are expected to arrive in Switzerland shortly.
