KUALA LUMPUR: Wisma Putra is in contact with the families of a Malaysian who was killed and 10 others hurt, after their tour bus was involved in a mishap in Turkey, says Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah (pic).

The Foreign Minister said Wisma Putra representatives are helping out in making arrangements for the families.

"Right now, we are unsure, as we are also waiting for the families to update us on the next step.

"Those who are injured will be in the hospital until they recover.

"(As for the deceased), we will wait for the request from the family," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby on Thursday (Oct 17).

Saifuddin also believes that the Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) would be helping out, as those involved in the mishap were its personnel who were visiting the country.

The accident, which involved a bus with 35 Malaysians, occurred when the bus was travelling from Pamukkale to Cappodokya on Wednesday (Oct 16).

The mishap took place at Afyonkarahisar which left one dead, while 10 more were injured, including four who were seriously hurt.

Wisma Putra said the victims are being treated at the Afyonkarahisar Hospital, about 300km away from Angkara.
