The bus overturned Sunday near Errachidia, in a usually arid region hit by flooding after torrential rains.

It was travelling between the coastal city of Casablanca and Rissani, a town close to Morocco's eastern border with Algeria.

MAP says the bus driver was initially listed among the missing but then turned himself in for treatment at a hospital on Monday. It wasn't immediately clear how many people in total were on the bus.
