By The Associated Press

TOKYO (AP) ' A bus carrying dozens of holidaymakers has crashed on a highway while heading for Tokyo Disneyland, killing seven passengers.

Police say the other 38 passengers and the 43-year-old driver were injured, 13 of them seriously, in the accident Sunday morning on a highway in Gunma, north of Tokyo. The bus crashed into a roadside wall, with steel wall panels slicing its body in half.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.

Six of the dead were women in their 20s, and the seventh was a man in his 40s or 50s. Police were having difficulty identifying the mangled bodies.

The passengers were mostly holidaymakers heading for Tokyo Disneyland as Japan headed into this week's "Golden Week" holidays.
