Bus crash kills 7 in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghan officials say a bus crash in western Afghanistan has killed seven people and wounded 12 others.

Framarz Sikandar, an official with the governor's office in the western province of Hirat, says the bus was travelling fast on a narrow road and the driver apparently lost control. Among the dead are several children.

The same narrow stretch of road was the site of a similar bus crash last month that killed 22 people.
