SANTIAGO, Chile (CNN) -- A bus carrying tourists on a side trip through the mountains of northern Chile plunged into a canyon Wednesday, killing 12 people, all of them American, authorities said.

The bus was carrying 16 tourists from a Miami, Florida-based cruise ship, most of whom are believed to be American.
