MAIMANA (PANinfo-icon): Eight people perished and one was injured in a head-on collision in northern Faryab province, officials said on Tuesday.

The accident occurred near the border between Andkhoi and Khwaja Dukoh districts, where a Hino truck collided with a Corolla car on the Faryab-Jawzjan highway, the traffic chief told Pajhwok Afghan News.
