ANKARA, June 12 (RIA Novosti) - A citizen of Russia
has died after she was hit by a car in popular Turkish resort
region of Antalya, the Russian consul general said on Friday.
The diplomat said Svetlana Kerzon, 58, was hit by a
passing by car on Thursday evening as she attempted to cross a
road in Alanya.
"The driver has been detained and an investigation is
underway. We remain in contact with the authorities and have
this issue under control," Mirdzhalol Khusanov said.
The most tragic incident involving Russian tourists this
year happened in Vietnam in March. A bus carrying 24 Russian
tourists and two Vietnamese on a day trip plummeted down a
precipice about 50 km (31 miles) from the tourist town of
Dalat, killing nine people and injuring 14 tourists.
