Road Accident in Iran Kills 28 Afghan Nationals

In Iran, at least 28 Afghan people have been killed  in a road accident in Sistan and Baluchistan province.

The report says 21 people were also injured when two vans collided near the town of Khash in Sistan and Baluchistan province early on Thursday. That’s about 1,500 kilometers, or 930 miles, southeast of the capital, Tehran.

The accident occurred when two vans crashed into each other near the town of Khash.

The area is commonly used by traffickers transporting migrants across the Afghan border – often in desperate, cramped conditions.

Iran has one of the world’s worst traffic safety records, which are blamed on disregard of traffic laws, unsafe vehicles and inadequate emergency services, according to the World Health Organization.
