Bus crash kills at least 15 in Farah


HERAT -- At least 15 Afghans were killed when a bus collided with a truck in Farah Province Friday (September 21), officials said.

Another 30 were wounded in the early morning crash in Bakwa District, provincial police spokesman Mohibullah Mohib told AFP.

The bus was travelling from Herat Province to Kandahar Province when the crash occurred.

All casualties were bus passengers, Naser Mehri, spokesman for the Farah provincial governor, told AFP, adding that at least three women and two children were among them.

It was unclear what caused the crash, but accidents involving long-distance passenger buses are fairly common in Afghanistan.

Earlier this month, at least 13 people were killed in an accident involving a bus and a truck in Kandahar.
