NEWSPAPER OR STANDARD VERSION?


Explanation:
un hombre mata a dos personas y secuestra un autobus turistico en Grecia

As a newspaper headline, using newsapaer English
MAN KILLS TWO AND HIJACKS A TOURSIST COACH/COACH OF TOURISTS IN GREECE

In standard English
A MAN KILLS TWO PEOPLE AND HIJACKS A TOURIST COACH/ COACH OF TOURISTS IN GREECE

Note: we don't know how many tourists are on the bus, but we can at least assume 'some', perhaps not that it's 'full'.

The 'wine bottle' and 'bottle of wine' difference that Spanish doesn't make appears here clearly with 'autobus tURISTICO'
