TAROUDANT, Morocco, Sept 15 (AFP) - The trial of a British woman accused of causing a road accident that killed eight French tourists in Morocco last March was postponed to October 19 by a court in this southern town, a judicial source said Wednesday.

Maureen Whit, who was not present in court, is accused of causing the crash of a coach in which the tourists were killed on March 29 in the Taroudant region 650km southeast of the capital Rabat.

She was driving an SUV and apparently lost control while overtaking the coach. She is charged with speeding, involuntary homicide and injury, and wrongful passing.

At a previous hearing on June 15 she was granted freedom under bail of 20,000 dirhams (EUR 1,800).
