DUBLIN (Reuters) - A man will appear in a Dublin court on Monday charged over an incident in which one woman was killed and several people injured when a stolen bus careered through the city's streets on Sunday afternoon.

Police opened fire on the coach during a five-mile chase in which the 53-seater bus collided with cars, including police vehicles.

The 36-year-old was an employee of the Dualway Coaches company that owned the stolen bus.

Police said a 61-year-old woman died as she was getting out of her car when it was hit by another car that had been hit by the bus.
