QALA-I-NAW (Pajhwok): At least 18 people were killed early on Sunday when a passenger bus plunged into a deep ravine in northwestern Badghis province, police said.

The crash occurred in the Bala Murghab district on the Badghis-Herat Highway around 7:30am, police official Mohammad Qayum Angar told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Without going into details, Angar said the victims belonged to Bala Murghab and Faryab province. The dead had been shifted to the district centre.

Poorly maintained roads and reckless driving often lead to such tragedies in the impoverished nation.
