At least 35 people were killed today when a bus crashed into a truck and then burst into flames on a treacherous pass in northern Afghanistan, the interior ministry said.

The bus was travelling north from Kabul along the narrow Salang pass when it "had an accident with a truck, as a result of which 35 passengers, including women, men and children, were killed," a ministry statement said.

The truck burst into flames, it said, adding that police and health workers had taken a number of people to hospital.
