Tehran, Iran, Aug. 27 – Twenty four Iranian students were killed on Saturday as their bus overturned on the road from Tehran to the north-eastern city of Mashad, state-run press reported on Sunday.

The head of Iran’s traffic police Brigadier General Mohammad Rouyanian announced in June that the expected death toll from accidents on Iran’s highways for the current year stood at 31,000.

Iran’s highways are considered to be among the most dangerous in the world, with some 100,000 road-accident deaths occurring in the last five years, the equivalent of three deaths an hour.
