Another 24 children were injured in the accident in the canton of Valais, near the border with Italy.
The bus - which was carrying children from Belgium - crashed into the wall of a tunnel. Both drivers were killed.
The children from the Belgian villages of Lommel and Heverlee were returning home after a skiing holiday. There were 52 people on the bus.
The bus hit the wall of the tunnel near the town of Sierre on Tuesday night.
Two classes of schoolchildren were travelling home after spending a skiing week in Val d'Anniviers, in the Swiss Alps.
Some of the injured were later flown to hospitals in Lausanne, Berne and other Swiss cities.
A helpline for families has been set up, and many parents are expected to arrive in Switzerland shortly.
Police described the crash as "unprecedented".
An investigation is now under way.

Bus Accident, Many Children Died

A bus accident occurred in Switzerland last night.
28 people died of whom 22 were children from Belgium and The Netherlands.
The children were on a school trip.

This is a blog of their trip: http://www.bloggen.be/l6a/
There are quotes on it like '- Dear mom, dad and Jacob. It is a lot of fun here. The food is very good. And skiing is working out really well.But I Really do miss you. Victor'

So tragic :(

Re: Bus Accident, Many Children Died

That is horrible and thankfully there were no photos of mangled children. I hope they are in a better place but no parent should have to bury a child. It definitely is a cruel world.

Tragic and parents still don't know if their kid is still alive wounded or dead.
