Kabul:  Afghan officials say at least 18 people have been killed in a traffic accident in the country's southeast.

Deputy provincial governor in Ghazni says the accident took place on Thursday on Afghanistan's main north-south highway, when a bus with more than 50 passengers on board rammed into a truck. Ahmad Ali Ahmad says there were also numerous injuries.

Ahmad says the accident was due to reckless driving on the part of the bus driver, who was speeding on a narrow part of the highway in the Qarabagh district.
