Eight foreigners were injured on Sunday afternoon following an accident involving a tram and a bus in the heart of the Portuguese capital’s downtown area.

The bus was registered to a French travel and tour company and all the victims, including those on the famous number 28 tram to Prazeres, were foreign nationals.

The injured, aged between 30 and 70, were taken to be observed at Lisbon’s São José Hospital as a precautionary measure and were all later discharged.

The road was closed to traffic for around three hours and involved 19 law enforcement and medical officials who were backed up by seven emergency response vehicles.
