Ten injured survivors of Saturday's crash of a Polish bus in Croatia landed in Warsaw on Wednesday afternoon, the Polish health ministry has said.

The 10 people were brought to Poland from the Croatian capital Zagreb by a military transport plane specially sent for them on Wednesday morning.

The crash, which occurred on Saturday morning on the A4 motorway north of Zagreb, claimed the lives of 12 people.

While heading in the direction of the capital the coach veered off the road and crashed into a ditch. Along with the dead the accident left 32 injured. All the victims were Polish citizens who were on a pilgrimage to the town of Medjugorje in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Four of the injured were brought back to Poland on a government delegation flight during the night from Saturday to Sunday.

The Polish health ministry said on Wednesday that the 10 casualties were in stable condition and had weathered the flight from Zagreb well.
