TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Abdul Hamid Afzali, Kandahar's traffic police director, says 25 others were also injured when a passenger bus collided with a truck in Zhari district on Saturday.
He said the truck had experienced "technical problems." A number of the injured were seen receiving medical treatment at Mirwais Regional Hospital.
Traffic accidents are common in Afghanistan, with most accidents on main highways due to reckless driving at high speeds. The bad condition of most roads is another factor.
