At least seven people were killed and 14 others injured in a traffic accident in the northeastern Badakhshan province of Afghanistan on Friday, local sources reported.

Taliban’s provincial police officials said the incident occurred when a passenger minibus overturned on the way to Khaash district in Badakhshan province, killing seven and injuring 14 others.

According to Taliban officials, the victims included women and children who were on their way to attend a wedding party in the Baharak district of the province.

The wounded people were carried to Faizabad Hospital for treatment, and the health conditions of some of them are reported critical.

Nearly two weeks ago, in two separate traffic accidents in the Keshm and Raghistan regions of the province, one died and at least 15 others sustained injuries.

Traffic accidents are not unusual in Afghanistan; annually hundreds of people die in traffic accidents on highways across the country – mostly as the result of high speeds and careless driving, inadequately constructed roadways, lack of rule of law, and poorly maintained vehicles.
