Bus crash kills 6, injures 27 in south Afghanistan
Kabul: Authorities say a bus crash in southern Afghanistan has killed at least six people and injured 27.
The bus was travelling from the country`s far west to the southern city of Kandahar when it crashed in the province of Helmand this morning.
Provincial government spokesman Daud Ahmadi says six bodies have been recovered and that 27 people were treated for injuries. He says the cause of the crash is unknown and the driver fled the scene soon afterward.
Helmand is one of Afghanistan`s most dangerous provinces and many roads are rife with homemade land mines. However, Ahmadi says the crash did not appear to be caused by any explosion.
