Scores killed after two buses and fuel tanker collide in Afghanistan

At least 73 people were killed when two passenger buses and an oil tanker burst into flames in a head-on collision in eastern Afghanistan, health officials said.

Many of the dead, including women and children, were burned beyond recognition and dozens of others were left badly injured in the accident in Ghazni province, near the Afghan capital, one of the areas worst affected by the Taliban insurgency.

The vehicles were completely gutted and clouds of acrid smoke shrouded the scene of the crash on the Kabul-Kandahar highway, a major roadway linking Afghanistan's two largest cities.

"The death toll has soared to 73," ministry spokesman Ismail Kawoosi said, warning that the toll was expected to rise still further.
