Bus Accident Leaves at Least 15 Dead in Southern Afghanistan
At least 15 civilians including women and children were killed when a
bus hit a lorry on the Kandahar-to-Herat highway in Afghanistan, an
official said on Saturday.
At least 25 other passengers were wounded in the deadly accident
which took place early Friday morning in Zheria district of Kandahar, a
spokesman for Kandahar provincial governor, Aziz Ahmad Azizi, said.
The wounded passengers were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.
Underdeveloped highways, recklessly driving at high speeds and
poorly maintained vehicles are the main reasons behind deadly accidents
in Afghanistan which claims hundreds of lives every year.
