A crash in southeastern Iran has killed 14 Afghan refugees and wounded 11 others, Iran’s semi-official ISNA news agency reported on Thursday.
According to the agency, the deadly accident involving two pickups took place Thursday morning on Saravan-Khash road.
The report did not say what caused the crash.
The area has been scene of occasional clashes between narcotics smugglers, bandits and al-Qaida-affiliated rebels against police and border guards.
With annual 17,000 casualties in road accidents in Iran, the country has one of the world’s worst traffic safety records.
