MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan, June 28 (Xinhua) -- About five passengers were killed while 16 others injured Saturday when a long-distance bus crashed head-on with a truck in northern Afghan province of Balkh, police said.

"The accident took place in Durrahi Hyratan area along Kabul- Mazar-i-Sharif highway in the morning, leaving five travelers dead, and 16 others injured," the highway police chief, Asif Sahra, told Xinhua.

Police and rescue teams rushed towards the site shortly after the accident happened, he said.

The Afghan officials blamed reckless driving for the traffic incidents, saying reckless driving on congested roads and highways is the main cause of road accidents in Afghanistan.
