Sudan's national news agency reports that a bus has crashed into a minibus outside the capital, killing at least 19 people.

The news agency quotes police official Sadeen Idris as saying the accident occurred on Saturday when the bus was trying to overtake a car at high speed and slammed into an oncoming minibus.

He says fifteen other people were wounded.

Road accidents are common in Sudan due to bad roads, overused cars and a lack of adequate traffic control.
