Tehran, Iran, Apr. 09 – At least 30 people were killed and 14 others injured when a truck slammed into a passenger bus on a highway between the western Iranian cities of Ilam and Kermanshah on Sunday.

Seventeen of those killed in the accident were men and 13 were women, a report in the state-run news agency Fars said on Monday, raising the original death toll of 26 that was announced on state television last night.

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.
