A train smashed into a passenger bus in the Tajik capital, killing nine people and leaving three seriously injured, an interior ministry official has told AFP.

"The driver of the bus was attempting to quickly get over a level-crossing, when the diesel locomotive was only a few metres (yards) away," he said.

The crash on Monday appeared to be the fault of the bus driver, he added.

The accident occurred in the south-west of Dushanbe, according to traffic police.
