Flags in Den Bosch will fly at half mast on Friday in a sign of respect for the people who died in Tuesday night’s bus crash in a Swiss tunnel, news agency ANP reports.
Many of the Belgian children and adults who died came from the town of Heverlee-Leuven and Den Bosch is twinned with Leuven.
This year the two towns are celebrating 750 years of being twinned.
Seven Dutch children died and three were injured when the bus hit a wall head-on on its way back from a skiing holiday.
