At least 33 killed in Algeria bus crash
Algiers, Jun 4: At least 33 people were killed and 22 others injured when a truck collided with a bus which burst into flames in Algeria early today, authorities said.
The accident took place near the city of Aflou, 400 kilometres south of the capital Algiers, the APS news agency said quoting the civil defence.
The bus slammed into a rocky embankment after the collision and caught fire, with most of the passengers who were asleep at the time burning to death, it said. Road accidents kill at least 4,000 people each year in Algeria.
